RagingWire Data Centers, an NTT Communications company, has hired Kevin Dalton as its new senior vice president of construction and critical facilities engineering and design. He will be based in the company’s headquarters in Sacramento, Calif.

Dalton will oversee the company’s newest data center projects. A new design, dubbed V2, will use modular construction techniques and a robust supply chain management system to lower building and maintenance costs. V2 will allow for multi-story, high capacity data center deployments which can support hyperscale and cloud services at a much lower cost and shorter cycle time, according to RagingWire.

The company is currently engaged in several expansion projects, including two 250,000-square-foot data centers in Ashburn, Va., a 42-acre campus in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro and a wholesale 19-acre property in western Chicago, for which it is pursuing building permits.

Prior to joining RagingWire, Dalton worked for 12 years at Digital Realty Trust, where he held various technical and senior management positions, such as senior sales engineer and director of engineering. There, he oversaw teams to design and deliver data center services for global customers. Dalton also worked at MGE UPS Systems for 10 years and at the McClier Corp. for nine years. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology.
