The conversion of an existing Class A office space into a new 5,000 SF data center was achieved in three short months in a fully occupied building without incident or disruption of service to occupants. The supporting infrastructure areas are protected by an Inergen fire suppression system as well as a city required, redundant fail safe pre-action system. The requirement for standalone and uninterrupted operation of servers required that new dedicated infrastructure be added, including new electrical service, UPS, standalone Chilled Water Cooling System with air cooled chillers and an emergency generator for back-up power. A new service yard (tilt-wall enclosure) was constructed in the adjacent parking lot for securing the generator and cooling tower from outside interference or tampering.
