Adaptability, integrity and speed to market are required characteristics of these essential facilities. Financial institutions, universities, healthcare facilities, cloud computing providers, communications and information technology companies require quickly constructed structures for data storage and processing, constructed for all different levels of integrity and robustness. Thornton Tomasetti has designed such facilities for different levels of redundancy ranging from Uptime Institutes Tier I to Tier IV systems.
Agile and Robust
The growth of the information and service economies has fueled enormous demand for mission-critical facilities that serve as information nerve centers. These facilities may serve as primary active operations centers, redundant installations, storage facilities for consumer or commercial data, or standbys for disaster recovery. We are well-versed in creating highly technical and sensitive facilities that support critical 24/7 operations.
High Performance Structures
We often design structural systems to withstand enhanced seismic and wind-loads exceeding local building code requirements, and sometimes hardened to withstand blast. In addition to new design, our experience encompasses renovation, conversion and the addition of on-site and off-site centers or stand-alone facilities.
