Data Center Design Construction Expansion

Data Center Design and Construction Expansion Project

EEC recently completed this data center expansion project for a large automobile services company

(Client would not allow pictures to be taken)

This project consisted of a data center design/build renovation and expansion of an existing 800 sq/ft data center which included infrastructure upgrade and increase of overall footprint. The existing and expanded data center had to utilize independent cooling systems (separate from the building plant), independent electrical supply and redundant UPS and cooling equipment.

Additional infrastructure was added to their UPS room, UPS/Switch room and the data center. These renovated rooms are now primarily cooled by a dedicated Glycol Cooling System being distributed by a two 15 hp Glycol Pump Package with three 3- fan Liebert dry coolers located on the roof of the 4th floor. All rooms are now protected by a new fire suppression system and environmental monitoring was added to monitor the new Liebert equipment installed, all fire suppression/detection systems, the existing UPS system and the water detection system was expanded.

The renovation consisted of decommissioning and removal of four up-flow computer room air conditioning units and three roof top dry coolers. Demolition of existing interior walls and ceiling to accommodate new expanded data center area. Construction of new and repairing of existing walls; all walls were constructed and/or repaired to conform to the UL 419 1 hour assembly rating. Installation of a new suspended ceiling system with 24” x 24” vinyl faced acoustical panels, new lighting throughout expansion area and raised access floor with 1/16” high performance.

EEC coordinated all delivery and rigging for provided equipment and also coordinated the equipment start-up and certifications services for all new equipment with the factory authorized technicians. The company also contracts with EEC to maintain all UPS systems, UPS batteries, HVAC systems, and fire suppression/detection systems.
