Today CoSentry, a leader in cloud computing and managed technical services, announced it has started construction on a $30 million project to build and outfit a 60,000 square foot data center in Lenexa, Kansas. The new data center will be built to accommodate clients seeking highly resilient, very secure facilities and infrastructure for their IT requirements. CoSentry will partner with JE Dunn Construction for the build of the advanced facility, commenting on the experience and reputation that led to their decision.

“JE Dunn was the clear choice after thorough review of our options,” explained Doug West, Vice President and General Manager of CoSentry. He continued, “We were seeking a partner that had the background and foresight to understand where this industry and specifically this community of high tech clients are going. It is a very demanding and exciting time in our industry and we required a partner who could keep pace.”

CoSentry operates a network of extreme density, high availability data centers which are connected with high capacity fiber links. This allows for the ability to design and operate highly reliable, very flexible data center capabilities at cost effective levels. The Lenexa facility will be amongst their top tier facilities, the company currently operates five other data centers in the central U.S. including a 12,000 square-foot data center in Kansas City, Missouri.

“We’re looking forward to working with CoSentry on this project,” remarked Dan Euston, President, JE Dunn-Midwest. “CoSentry’s Lenexa center is the type of project that keeps JE Dunn Construction at the forefront of the industry and challenges us to maintain our commitment to integrity, quality and client collaboration.”

The project is expected to continue through the summer with occupancy in early fall. Clients may reserve space effective February 20, 2012.
