Wall Data Center

Project summary provided by submitting company.

This building is a Tier 3 data center, which means the building is constructed similar to a bunker for computer servers. Due to the critical nature of this type of data, the building was designed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane. The building also has a large demand on its HVAC system, so the project was designed with concrete sandwich walls and tight envelope system to stringent criteria for energy efficiency.

The project is a two-story, 36-foot tall, 20,800-square-foot facility with warehouse occupancy at the ground floor and office occupancy at the second floor. The finished grade slopes from the second floor level to the ground floor level are on each end of the building.

The perimeter walls of the building are sandwich-insulated, tilt-up concrete wall panels. The wall panels are two-stories tall around the entire building and retain earth on three sides of the building.

The roof is steel framed including structural metal deck, steel bar joists, steel joist girders, and steel tube columns. The second floor was designed for office occupancy and includes concrete slab-on-metal form deck, steel bar joists, steel wide-flange beams, and steel tube columns.

Three top reasons this project should be considered for a Tilt-Up Achievement Award:

1. Designed for Critical Data Integrity, including ability to withstand a Category 5 Hurricane

2. Built to deliver advanced Energy Efficiency due to the critical nature of the environment for data storage

3. Constructed during the winter
