Project Description

The Washington State Data Center is a 199,000 square foot office building and data center constructed on the Washington State Capitol Campus. Through a multi-phase RFP process, the State selected a team to deliver the facility using tax-exempt 63-20 bonds and private-sector development expertise. The project allowed the State to consolidate its information technology staff into one location and provided a data center large enough for its expanding needs. Using innovative procurement techniques and cost-saving measures, the private development team was able to complete the project significantly under budget, with the majority of project savings flowing back to the state for additional facility improvements and rent abatement.

Our staff was involved with this project while employed at National Development Council.  NDC created the Special Purpose Entity that issued bonds and currently maintains ownership on behalf of Washington State.
