DPR had the advantage of having built Building 2 (FRA12), the previous data center on this campus for Digital Realty. Transferring knowledge of the expectations, trade partners’ practices and local conditions from FRA12 to Building 3 (FRA13) were critical to delivering a successful project. Core members of the project and trade partner teams who were closing out FRA12 were pulled into the planning for FRA13 to share lessons learned and insights at an early stage. This meant a more reliable plan and greater predictability for the execution of FRA13. As a result of this collective, shared knowledge, the DPR team was able to improve quality, planning and trade partner efficiency.
