Mission Critical Internal Expansion for New Data Center

GBA provided all architectural and engineering design associated with the preparation of construction documents for this mission critical internal expansion, which involved converting 5,000 square feet of shell space into telecommunication and data center power equipment-ready space. A new electrical service, standby diesel generator and air-cooled chillers were added to support the new equipment.

Additionally, office areas were converted into warehouse space, the roof and windows were replaced and the site was modified to accommodate the new generator location.

  • New low voltage distribution switchboard
  • Two 210 ton nom. air-cooled chillers with provisions for a third future chiller
  • Six downflow and two upflow Liebert CRAC units with provisions for future CRAC units
  • Expansion of first-floor preaction and clean agent zones, EWFD and VEWFD in new equipment spaces
  • Expansion of steel roof platform to accommodate new roof-mounted chillers
  • Concrete foundations and pad at the new generator
