A strategic consolidation and modernization of Hana Financial Group’s data infrastructure, the Hana Financial Group data center promises to be one of the most advanced on the Korean peninsula. DPR joined and represented the client’s team as the preconstruction manager. The first phase of the project includes design, preconstruction and construction of a seven-story, 325,000-sq.-ft. data center and 13-story, 342,000-sq.-ft. administration building.

With DPR’s guidance, collaborative preconstruction methods were introduced and deployed, including a big room colocation space, BIM tools, target value design, and a pioneering open-book guaranteed maximum price contract scheme. As technical mission-critical experts, the DPR team guided the project team through the evaluation and selection methodologies for cooling systems, equipment selections, redundancy and UPS systems, data hall and building configuration, and MEP-systems-driven core/shell design considerations.
