Facebook’s new Fort Worth Data Center is a new, 200-acre data campus being delivered in multiple phases. The site includes three IT load data centers with rooftop air handling equipment, outdoor standby diesel generators and supporting electrical substation. An administrative building connects two of the data centers; the third data center is a standalone building.
“We’re excited to be celebrating this significant project milestone and continuing to support Facebook in the development of the most efficient computing infrastructure possible,” said Andy Andres of DPR Construction. “Our team will build upon our previous experience to deliver a world-class mission critical facility.”
This Fort Worth project is the fourth Facebook data center campus built by DPR. Previous projects include:
- Facebook’s first ground-up data center in Prineville, Oregon, which won “Project of the Year” and “Green Project of the Year” from Engineering News-Record in 2011
- Two 370,000-plus-square-foot facilities in Forest City, North Carolina, as well as ancillary buildings
- A 300,000-square-foot data center in Lulea, Sweden—Facebook’s first data center outside of the U.S.
