While waiting for the building permits, the DPR team worked extensively as Design-Assist partners with the concrete and steel subcontractors and designers to value engineer and maximize efficiency of erection sequences to expedite project delivery. This fast track project schedule started with partial permits for site and grading. As the project progressed, the team worked with multiple cranes for the steel and concrete panel erection, manned by multiple shifts. Additional site challenges included a 100-year storm that the project team skillfully managed to prevent delays in construction.
Phase 1 of CyrusOne’s Building 4 consisted of 120,000-sq.-ft of core and shell work, as well as the complete construction of Data Hall 1 (30,000-sq.-ft.). When all phases are finished, Building 4 will provide 9 megawatts of generator power with 80,000-sq.-ft. of data center space. Building 4 is one of seven buildings that will make up the 1,000,000-sq.-ft. master planned facility in Chandler. When finished, the campus will deliver up to 100 megawatts of power to serve enterprises in the Western U.S., making it one of the largest and most energy efficient data centers in the country.
