The Knowledge, Resources & Will to Deliver
We Build Data Centers
faster, better and safer
Our team of professionals have built datacenters across America and around the world.
We build datacenters to fit each customer’s exact needs.
Our modular construction techniques improve both speed and quality.
Our team simplifies the complex to build faster and better.
Weeks Group was founded on a vision to build data centers faster without sacrificing quality. We are driven by a passion for excellence in results and service, combined with a vision for layering innovative technology together in a simple way that will provide exponential results. A leader in speed and execution. Faster to innovate, faster to market. Faster deliverables, faster results. We can build what you need.
We take modular construction to a whole new level, refining the means and methods for assemblies on a construction site. By preassembling as much as possible off-site and deploying an innovative sequencing of labor, technology and quality reviews, we provide owners, data companies and their construction teams with mission critical facilities months ahead of the rest of the industry. The result offers owners reduced costs and greater efficiencies.
Our experienced team working around the globe and across the US knows how to conquer a highly complex and singular challenge – we connect the pieces of the data center design and construction puzzle to accelerate and streamline construction. Our team leverages an unparalleled network of vendors, manufacturers and subcontractors to put the right people, materials and services for each project into the right place at the right time.
On Time. On Budget. We Get It Done.
“Aaron Weeks never gives up. He has a level of tenacity that most people do not possess. If there’s a problem, he is immediately coming up with a creative way to solve it.
Do not wait until there is a problem, get Aaron Weeks on your project on the front end where he can make the most impact. Aaron is extremely knowledgeable about the industry. It’s one thing to have good work ethic, which he does, but Aaron understands all aspects of the build, which significantly impacts the entire project outcome.”
— Jerry Sams, Program Manager
“I would hire Aaron Weeks to completely lead a project of any size. His phenomenal attention to detail, knowledge and drive brings impact far surpassing that of just one person. Weeks gains understanding of every aspect of the project and ensures everyone around him understands it as well. Seeing the big picture, he is excellent at connecting a multitude of workstream threads to orchestrate the optimal outcome.
Aaron is incredibly creative when it comes to problem solving difficult situations. If materials or equipment are late, he solves for how to deal with each issue to keep the project on time. I like Aaron, and I enjoy working with him. He knows what he’s doing and doesn’t accept failure as an option.”
— Terry Rennaker, VP Development, xScale, Equinix
“Weeks Group was responsible for the Modular Development on one of the highest stakes projects I’ve done.
An intense degree of communication and collaboration was required between two different General Contractors, and Weeks’ ability to adapt, move fast, see the big picture, and foresee potential issues months in advance made the project extremely successful. He is transparent and full of integrity in his communications and leadership.
I absolutely love working with Aaron- It was a huge project; one we will talk about when we are old and sitting in our rocking chairs on the porch. Weeks Group is second to none.”
— Dylan Borvanski, Owner
“Mike Sparks is very efficient, upfront and detail oriented. He was responsive to my requests and was always looking to do what needed to be done next across the board. Sparks is very positive and was instrumental even in helping other contractors outside of his scope of work. When I had a technical or safety issue- all I had to do was tell Mike and it was resolved. Sparks is an excellent, refreshing guy to work with.”
— Scott Elrod, Datacenter Safety Consultant/Owner Representative
“Aaron Weeks has an in-depth approach and extensive knowledge of specific integration and inspection of electrical equipment and systems. He was brought into a project lacking schedules and critical pathways- like throwing a dart at a dart board. He quickly established schedules and processes, turning the environment around. Commitments became focused, things began lining up and coordination between subcontractors improved. I like Aaron as a person, we formed a friendship and I am pleased to work with him any chance I get.”
“Weeks Group’s goal is to make their client SUCCESSFUL. They do this by staying up with technology and offering practical, cost-effective alternatives. Weeks deals with diversity well and discerns the various dynamics to identify the actual project criteria. They are able to differentiate a client’s wants from their needs.
As an Owner’s Representative, Weeks adapts to the constant changes and gauges the erroneous information so prevalent in the industry today. They understand the steps necessary for a construction project to actually serve the intended purpose and begin operation.
Industry veterans recognize excellence and Weeks is excellent.”
-Jess Pettit, firstname.lastname@example.org
“Mike Sparkes is straight forward person and communicates the facts of a project. If there is a problem, question, or issue, he brings it forward for open communication and discussion so a solution can quickly be found and project progress can continue. When Mike says something, you could take it to the bank. I have a tremendous amount of confidence in Mike Sparks, it is a real pleasure to work with him.”
“Aaron Weeks was initially brought into my project because of his experience, knowledge, abilities and expertise. He came into a incohesive project and created a structure that reinforced processes and procedures holding all players accountable. Aaron has extensive knowledge of the Data Industry and is able to integrate what needs to be done pairing safety and production in an efficient manner. Aaron goes out of his way to communicate problems and progress. I enjoy working with Aaron, he is effective and moves what I need to accomplish forward.”
-K Flores, Principal Project Consultant
“Mike Sparks provided generator installation on our very complex project. The position required significant safety responsibilities from planning generator crane lifts to implementation. Mike was able to navigate, persevere and deliver a quality product and experience in the face of a difficult situation. Sparks’ leadership was flawless. His attitude, approachability, knowledge, attentiveness and concern for others made him key to our project being completed on time and within budget. I would love the opportunity to work with Weeks Group again!”
