The Budget-Friendly, Tier III, LEED Gold Data Center (Yes, It Can Be Done!)

This presentation details what it takes to design and construct a tier III enterprise data center within an existing facility while a second data center was built at the same time in a different location – all on an aggressive schedule and budget, using a team approach that included the construction manager and the entire design team. The result: A LEED Gold certification (thanks to energy efficient mechanical and electrical equipment, lighting fixtures and controls, water efficient fixtures and green power), and an Uptime Institute Tier III certification (courtesy of redundant MEP systems and components resulting in a concurrently maintainable facility). Learn about the system specifics that contributed to an energy-efficient, sustainable, highly optimized data center.
1. Analyze the decision to build new versus building within an existing facility
2. Discuss the benefit of bringing the construction manager and design team on board simultaneously
3. Understand the keys to establishing a realistic budget
4. Find a balance between efficiency, sustainability and maintainability
