CCG Facilities Integration

Innovating Mission Critical Systems

National City Corporation
Multiple Data Centers

Project Overview

CCG supported National City Corporation by providing strategic consulting advisory over the course of several years. These projects focused on NCC’s two primary data centers located in Cleveland and Cincinnati, on an acquired data center in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and on two prospective green field initiatives.

NCC undertook major $50 million, 4 MW expansions at their Cleveland and Cincinnati locations, in addition to several prior upgrades at the Cleveland Data Center.

CCG’s ability to bring a range of skills to NCC promoted a continuity of approach and personnel through widely diverse assignments over the total facility project cycle.
