The construction of such huge building is not an easy task and the amount of money needed to finish the project is huge because the builders must use the best construction materials to protect Apple`s servers. It would be a good idea to consult the Cornerstone specialists because they can provide the best building materials and make sure no unfortunate cases happen in case of heavy rains or storms.
