At completion, this project marked the fourth data center DPR has built for Digital Realty in Santa Clara, CA. This design/build effort in an existing 40,000-sq.-ft. building boasts 23,000 sq. ft. of raised floor space with a density of 150 watts/sq. ft. and a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.3 at full load. The critical load capacity is 3.375 MW and the facility is cooled with a 130-ton Tran Intellipak packaged air handling unit (AHU).
Looking for a cost saving and innovative way to provide the client a quicker to market solution, the electrical room skids with UPS modules and switchgear were fabricated in Texas, then shipped to and installed in Santa Clara.
Achieved LEED-CI Platinum certification.
