In conjunction with the V1 Annex and V1 DM8/DM9 projects, this phased sequence consisted of the upgrade to an existing occupied building included a new data module and office tenant improvements. The most complicated of the phases, the project increased the chilled water infrastructure and cooling capacity and added electrical room infrastructure including transformers, switchgear, UPS units, battery cabinets, and CRAH units to support 3MW of data center space at 2N redundancy. Extensive coordination was required to maintain services on this operating mission critical campus and the project was delivered using a design-build delivery method, including design-build MEP systems.
As a mission critical facility, the scope also covered uninterrupted power supply for critical components of the operation, including IT load. The project included complex interrelated building systems (such as security monitoring, cameras, building and energy management systems) to the telecommunications infrastructure connecting existing campus and data distribution.
