Frost Bank Data Center

San Antonio, TX

Project Description

The Frost Bank Data Center is located on a 25-acre site which has been master planned for additional bank facilities to be co-located on the campus. The 71,000-square-foot Tier III+ facility includes 20,500 square feet of raised floor area. The project has been designed to be able to migrate from an initial build-out of 100 W/sf to 240 W/sf when fully fit out. The building design allowed Frost Bank to initially fit-up a portion of the white space with administrative functions over the raised floor area. As demand for white space area increases, the administrative areas will be removed to allow the fit-up of the white space.

The data center is designed to withstand an F3 tornado event. The exterior concrete tilt-up walls are steel reinforced, 10-inch concrete panels. The steel structural frame can withstand a 206 MPH wind rating. The roof is an eight-inch thick concrete ballast over a hot asphalt membrane roofing system. The emergency generator plant and switchgear are also housed in tornado-resistant structures.
