Vantage Data Center's new state-of-the-art VA12 building is the second build on the VA1 42-acre campus. The two-story building design offers client’s top-of-the-line security and amenities for people to focus as well as recharge. The design team paid particular attention to create a unique world class design that stands out while fitting into the aesthetic established by the Virginia campus and other Vantage campuses worldwide.

Corgan made a number of innovative design enhancements from the first build of the campus, VA11, to more efficiently allocate resources and create an aesthetically dynamic building that further improves on performance and customer experience. Much of this was done through the design team's approach to materials that playfully interact with one another in a series of intersecting and protruding planes.

A blue, specialty butt-glazed glass is focused in the most used public spaces like the entry lobby and break area. Floor to ceiling clear glass in the office areas offer views onto green spaces across the way. Metal panels and exposed decorative white architectural precast concrete panels with a fluted form liner were used in exterior public spaces. Insulated precast concrete panels were used on the rest of the building exterior offering optimal energy performance and resilience.

Special care was taken to provide an elevated customer experience and heightened security throughout this new building from the lobby entry experience through the break area in order to provide space where clients can work efficiently. Amenities include conference rooms throughout, as well as a large-scale break room with hoteling spaces, food, games, and entertainment.
