The project scope included development of a 6.5-acre site, construction of a 58,000-square-foot tilt-wall building on a structural, suspended slab, and construction and commissioning of a 10,000-square-foot datacenter. Clune was involved from the first schematic budget through commissioning.
In addition to 32,000 square feet of office and technical operations space, this project was the first of four datacenter builds for this client. As such, the project included building the datacenter and a second shared redundant generator system that will also be used to provide additional redundancy for the second datacenter.
The project included utilizing two 400-ton air-cooled chillers with a prefabricated modular pump room for each data hall. The eight-foot under floor loop was constructed to feed CRAH units in the raised floor space. To ensure the design would perform, our team performed extensive under floor modeling and fully coordinated the location of each piece of equipment, conduit and pipe using 3D modeling software.
Scope also included installing an electrical and mechanical site management and monitoring system. The electrical scope included preparing the site for the 10MW that was delivered to the site in five phases. The new medium voltage utility services is backed up by a single 2MW generator and half of a shared redundant 2MW generator. The switchboards each support a two module, 1,250kVA UPS system and all the mechanical and other incidental loads.
