The Winter 2012 7×24 Exchange Central Virginia Chapter meeting was held at the QTS Data Center in Sandston, Virginia on December 4.  A total of 120 industry professionals attended the event and included notable representatives from Capital One, The Federal Reserve Bank, State of Virginia – Secretary of Technology Office, Bank of America and Anthem.  Numerous construction companies, consulting engineers and mission critical suppliers also participated making it the largest meeting in the chapters history.

Our guest speaker was Christopher Johnston, Senior Vice President and Chief Engineer for Syska’s National Critical Facilities Team, who spoke about Future Trends in Data Centers.  Download Christopher’s presentation slideshow deck (Note: This is a 5 MB File).

We’d like to thank our lunch sponsors, QTS Data Centers and DPR Construction, whom provided a gourmet lunch catered through Panera Bread.  The tour that QTS provided was very impressive and the the chapter would like to congratulate QTS for achieving LEED Gold certification for the facility.

We’d like to wish everyone a safe and wonderful holiday season and look forward to continued success in the coming new year.
