This 215,000-square-foot complex is comprised of a four-story data hall tower and a two-story shipping and receiving office facility with an adjacent double-height generator yard. Our scope included a mill order model and connection design to meet the fast-track, 35-week construction schedule.
We provided structural design and construction engineering services to Gensler for the design-bid-build facility, which opened in 2019.
- The start of this project began with an evaluation of different structural systems. Our multidisciplinary team leveraged its wide-ranging system familiarity to identify that which would be most optimal for this case.
- Later in the project, the logistics of construction sequencing called for some existing facilities to remain on site at the start of construction, which would conflict with the planned foundations.
- We worked collaboratively with the team to find an alternative scheme that met the construction needs without compromising structural integrity.
