Confidential Client Live Data Center Renovation
Confidential Client Live Data Center Renovation | Westford, MA
The data center renovation project consisted of a multi-phase project to streamline the customer’s existing data center which runs the entire East Coast. The demolition scope of work in the data center involved the removal of all existing overhead ductwork, lighting, CRAC Units, UPS’s and PDU’s while the data center was in operation. DPR also removed existing heat exchangers and condensing units on the roof.
The renovation work consisted of the installation of new dunnage steel on the roof to accept the new backup chillers. The existing gas line had to be re-routed which had to be completed prior to heating season and needed close coordination with the building. In the data center, DPR installed new in-row coolers, UPS’s, PDU’s, busways, lighting, and a new nitrogen fire suppression system. In addition to the mechanical upgrades, a new demising wall was built to separate the A & B sides of the data center, carpeting in the adjacent hallway and wire mesh cages for data center storage.
DPR’s self-perform work team was crucial in executing this project. They performed several scopes of work including drywall, doors/frames/hardware and painting.
