Quest, a technology management business, completed expansion of its highly secure and resilient Service Delivery Center, adding 10,000 square feet to its facility at the former McClellan Air Force Base. An additional expansion of 20,000 square feet will be completed in August, and a third is being planned.

Quest chose McClellan because the site is one of the most seismically stable locations in California and it's outside the Sacramento flood zone. McClellan also offers one of the state's most advanced fiber optic cable and redundant broadband infrastructures.

McClellan is one of nearly two dozen Quest Service Delivery Centers across the country. "Our Service Delivery Centers incorporate an entire spectrum of IT capabilities," according to Tim Burke, president and CEO of Quest. "From our Service Delivery Centers, we're able to offer a vast array of hosted and business continuity services as well as remote monitoring and management of customers' systems, networks, and application environments. We provide the space where customers can securely house their equipment or can relocate their operations in the event of a disaster," Burke said.

The Air Force Real Property Agency (AFRPA) is responsible for remediating environmental contamination and transferring property at 40 former Air Force installations throughout the United States under the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) program. At the height of BRAC, AFRPA managed 87,000 acres, and since 1988 the agency has transferred 88 percent, or nearly 77,000 acres, to local communities for public use. These transfers play a key role in attracting businesses like Quest to McClellan Business Park.
