Olsson Associates designed a 4 MW, 20,000 square foot data center with attached 96,000 square foot, four-story corporate office building. The project required Mechanical Electrical Plumbing (MEP), interior design, and mission critical design on a campus with multiple buildings. The data center is Tier III+ with design for densities up to 30 KW per cabinet. Design is 2N+1 with 3-to-get-2 scheme to expand additionally by fifty percent in the future. Design incorporates multiple parallel generator scheme with isolated redundancy on distribution schemes. Cooling is from central chilled water plant and various free-cooling/economizer designs. The overall expected power usage effectiveness is to be 1.6.
Olsson Associates also provided structural services for the 96,000 square foot, four-story corporate office building with a 4 MW, 20,000 square foot data center attached. From Conceptual/Schematic Design through Construction Administration, the Olsson structural team was integral to the design and construction process.
