LOS ANGELES (Business Wire) -- AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for public and private clients in more than 140 countries around the world, announced today that its Tishman Construction operation is serving as construction manager of critical infrastructure and interiors for Sentinel Data Centers and Russo Development's new joint venture in Orangetown, N.Y.

This greenfield data center is part of a new build-to-suit mission critical project with a large financial institution end-user.
