Client and Tenant Coordination for Data Center Prototype
Building B, one of three buildings on the Intergate Quincy Campus, was a ground-up design and construction project based on a data center prototype that we helped develop. The prototype’s distinguishing feature is a “plug and play” exterior electrical power system using exterior shipping style containers to house electrical gear for future flexibility. The advantage is more leasable space for the client and less architectural changes in the future to accommodate electrical equipment updates.
Building B was a unique project in that most colocation data centers are designed for multiple tenants and this building was leased to a single tenant. The Fortune 50 tenant’s design and security criteria influenced the planning of office core and facility support areas, making it an atypical building on the campus and generating prototype modifications.
The architectural team coordinated and facilitated design solutions between Sabey, the tenant, the tenant’s security team, and the tenant’s sub-consultants: Salas O’Brien was adaptable to the changing and evolving needs of both the client and tenant.
