DPR completed this 250,000-sq.-ft., 20MW data center for a major financial software company in Quincy, Washington. The support facility handles data processing storage for the company’s internet business operations.
The building shell is structural steel with pre-cast concrete panels. The site was overexcavated six feet below the finished floor to make room for 46 miles of underground conduit and 45,000 cubic yards of lean concrete backfill to support this critical facility. Inside, DPR built-out the infrastructure down to the remote power panels. A static UPS system with diesel generators provides the back-up power source.
This confidential financial software provider joined a growing list of technology companies drawn to Quincy, a small farming town near the Columbia River in Grant County. The town is attractive for its abundant land, inexpensive cost of power from the Columbia River and network of fiber optic cable lines.
