In conjunction with the V1 Annex and V1 DM10 projects, this phased sequence consisted of the upgrade to an existing occupied building and included two new data modules, office tenant improvements, and a seismic retrofit. The project added large underfloor chilled water line infrastructure, as well 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.
