KENOSHA, WIS. – IT solutions provider OFFSITE today announced the expansion of its data center operations with plans for a new hyperscale data center campus in southeast Wisconsin. The proposed 12-acre campus will be scalable to 250,000-square-feet with up to 35 megawatts of critical load. The site, located just off I-94 in Pleasant Prairie, is just one mile north of the Illinois/Wisconsin border, approximately 50 minutes from Chicago and 30 minutes from Milwaukee.
“We have been operating our current data center campus in southeast Wisconsin since 2001 and the location between two major metros has served our client base and company well,” said Steve Borucki, President and CEO of OFFSITE. “This expansion speaks to the rapid growth of OFFSITE as well as the region. Southeast Wisconsin is the place to be right now and this project is designed to capture and capitalize on that growth.”

The company was founded on the belief that people are the most important component of any IT environment. As such, its data center designs are unique from other providers, in that they focus not only on building great data centers for machines, but also great data centers for the people who work in them.
“We believe that designing data centers to accommodate the people who use them is as important as any critical infrastructure system in the data center,” said Borucki.
The new facility will feature state of the art colocation design, expansive client amenities, conference rooms, IT training facilities, workspace and vendor event space.
The Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin site, which is now under contract, meets the company’s growth, power and communications requirements, positioning the company well to serve and grow with the economies of both greater Chicago and southeastern Wisconsin.
