This prototype resulted in $XXB in planned savings in 2023 by shifting our strategy to leaner and higher density rack designs supporting AI as well as deprioritizing lower ROI/non-critical projects across the organization. o Drove the logistical and operational implementation across our XFN teams in legal, operations, design, and capacity planning to realize these saving while also maintaining contractor relationships and financial statement integrity.
• Spearheaded the 0 to 1 creation of the Infrastructure Land optionality playbook for our $XB Data Center Site Development portfolio by hosting in-depth working sessions with Capacity and Site Planning to connect our land procurement strategy to our evolving Infrastructure needs. o This playbook allows for evaluating the optimal cost, quality, and location of land for future sites while providing optionality given volatile fluctuations in demand requirements, regulatory changes, and energization contracts.
