Because this client’s data center was on the second floor of a three-story building, our main challenge was fitting equipment and materials for the installation into the facility’s elevators.
To overcome this challenge, we worked closely with the equipment manufacturers to design units that fit within the available space. This allowed us to move all equipment and materials into the occupied facility without disrupting day-to-day activities.
Our solutions helped to lower energy costs, increase energy efficiency, provide effective data center cooling, and achieve a more comfortable and productive working environment.
To meet growth demands, the client needed us to provide an energy-efficient, state-of-the-art central plant and a 3,800-linear-foot chilled water loop to serve their data center.
Our solutions for the central plant included:
- Three 300-ton chillers
- Three 100-horsepower pumps
- Two fan coil units
- Four 20-ton air conditioning units
Our solutions for the 25,000-square-foot data center included:
- 14 40-ton air conditioning units
- One outside air handler
- 22 fan coil units
- A new facility monitoring system
- Eight connections to accommodate future needs
