After the organization has evaluated potential site locations and determined a shortlist, an extra step in due diligence should be performed. Site visits can help to validate decisions, and identify any potential issues in chosen locations.

This checklist addresses the following:

  • External environment where data center may be located (environmental and physical hazards).
  • Internal site visit checkpoints (clean power, secured areas, and cooling equipment).
  • Physical attributes of the building (loading docks, water lines, and power grids).

Understand what to look for before and during a site visit to ensure due diligence has been covered, and to help with the final selection decision for a data center building site.
