JE Dunn completed Phase I of a 70,000-square-foot build-out of an existing office building into a co-location data center. This includes the installation of 12,000 square feet of 30” tall raised access floor at 150 wsf. The project includes (4) 750kVA Liebert UPS Modules in an isolated redundant configuration, (3) 2000 kW diesel generators, (10) 300 kVA PDU’s (power distribution units), 1000 tons of cooling capacity and (18) 55-ton CRAC units.
Due to the fast-tracked nature of the project, Building Information Modeling was utilized to meet the schedule. Both the interior and exterior of the building were “laser scanned” collecting over 6 million points of data. This “as-built” information was loaded into the REVIT model where all MEP subcontractors modeled their designs. Underground conduit, chilled water piping, chiller plant piping, ductwork, and pre-action fire sprinkler piping were fabricated. Complete “clash detection” was performed to eliminate re-work in the field.
