With 4,000 SF of white space and 7,000 SF of offices, electrical room, print room and tape library, this data center was built for a confidential client in 5 months. One of the more challenging aspects to the project involved transforming an antique currency security vault with 18″ thick concrete walls into a data center white space.
Since all offices in and around the data center had to be operational 24/7, we worked after hours and on weekend regularly, and even worked on ladders above an active mailroom. Coordination of power and chilled water shutdown could only be accomplished on Thanksgiving Day. Typically for data center projects, tight security measures were in place for all construction personnel and vendors.
