With power and cooling accounting for 80 percent of the data center operating costs, customers are trending towards this high-density layout which reduces the distance in cable runs and networks, minimizing the cooling and space footprint and resulting in increased efficiency. Every two years, the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles, and the high-density layout also offers more flexibility for these future needs.
DPR incorporated lessons learned from past buildouts through installing all future steel supports to eliminate re-work at the roof and resequencing future equipment rigging to minimize the number of temporary roll-up doors. Now complete, Phase 1 includes a 6MW data hall. Once fully occupied, the building will have six separate data halls, built-out over the next two to three years, hosting 36MW of critical power.
