Total Site Solutions has signed an agreement with IBM Corp. to deliver engineering, design and construction management services to Big Blue's customers.
Total Site Solutions, which is owned by Fortress International Group., Arlington, Va., supplies the government and commercial sectors with secure data centers and other mission critical facilities designed to survive terrorist attacks, natural disasters and blackouts.
In so doing, Total Site Solutions becomes the fourth company nationwide with which IBM of Armonk, N.Y., has entered into an agreement to provide design and construction services, said Tom Rosato, Fortress International's CEO.
"With the added talent we hired to work with IBM in support of this agreement and with the increased capitalization and bonding capacity that we can now bring to IBM and its clients, we expect there will be many opportunities to grow substantially in the wide variety of markets serviced by IBM," Rosato said.
Fortress was established in December 2004 for the purpose of acquiring, through a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition or other business combination, operating businesses in the homeland security industry.
