I have built 8 colos so far with 10 - 200 racks and 2 NOCs. I have done
everything from design all of the systems to actually laying block. There
is WAY to much that goes into building a colo to talk about this on this
list. If you want more info send me some email and I may be able to help
you out.

P.S. Not all of my colo centers were airplane proof as one person at
NANOG kindly noted. :-)
