Confidential Client Control Building / Data Center

Undisclosed Location, US

Project Description

This 180,000-square-foot structure contains a 107,000-square-foot command-and-control operations center for a large, regional corporation. The remaining 73,000 square feet are utilized for a new corporate data center.

The guiding principle for the design of this facility was to eliminate all single points of failure for mission-critical systems. The supporting infrastructure for both data processing and system control and data acquisition functions is designed using a “concurrently maintainable” model for redundancy, meaning that the design includes the ability to maintain fully redundant infrastructure services during maintenance activities without sacrificing backup system availability during unplanned failures of the primary systems.
