A Year of Unwavering Growth: T5 Scales New Heights in 2023

T5 Data Centers, the telecommunications industry’s only full lifecycle data center partner, achieved impressive growth and evolution over 2023. 

New Chicago Location

A significant move was acquiring a 36-megawatt facility in Chicago, significantly increasing T5’s capacity to serve hyperscale and enterprise clients. The facility’s redundancy, expansion potential and network density enable T5 to meet intense demand in a top U.S. metro area.

Bolstering Our Leadership

Additionally, T5 strengthened expertise with four pivotal new hires – a general counsel to oversee legal matters; a data center operations specialist to enhance technical capabilities; a construction services expert to improve building capabilities; and a business development leader to drive strategic growth. 

Industry Presence

Staying at the forefront of industry trends, T5 executives spoke at several high-profile conferences about sustainability, operations and community engagement innovations. They provided insights into security, costs, environmental impact and development considerations in Northern Virginia’s rapidly growing data center market at DCD Connect Virginia. 

T5 also published an eBook showcasing best practices for adapting data centers alongside changing business conditions while maintaining maximum uptime to provide guidance to the industry.

Sticking to Values

Additionally, T5 attended an iMasons’ Armed Forces event at PTC about employing skilled veterans in data center roles, aligning with its longtime commitment to hiring former military. The company also proved itself to be a leader in the industry by receiving iMasons’ prestigious IM100 Award, validating its lasting impact on efficiency and stewardship. 

Forever Safe

As shown by T5’s Facilities Management and Construction groups, safety is a top priority, surpassing 3 million hours worked without a lost-time incident. This achievement highlights an unwavering commitment to safety across T5’s portfolio of operating data centers and construction sites. 

Forever Green

T5 pledged continued involvement in the visionary book Greener Data by authoring a new chapter for the 2024 edition. The second volume will arrive on Earth Day 2024.

European Expansion

T5 formally debuted facilities management services for European customers at DCD Connect London. This platforms T5’s signature Forever On uptime pledge in the growing EU colocation market. Already, award-winning T5 processes successfully support a hyperscale data center in Denmark.

With significant talent acquisition, market expansion and delivery of client value, 2023 was a year of meaningful milestones for T5. Entering 2024, the company remains dedicated to empowering clients’ digital infrastructure lifecycles with excellence and trust. Further achievements await on the horizon. Learn more at
