320K SF data center design with 49 MW of critical load

This 10-acre site will include three facilities totaling 49MW of critical IT load and 320,000 gross square feet of space once fully developed. Built to Tier III+ standards with an annual design PUE at full capacity of 1.2, the campus offers 300W/SF average densities and can support high-density applications.

EYP MCF is providing Trusted Advisor Services throughout the process of planning, designing, construction, and commissioning of the project. 

Our subject matter experts provided guidance during the basis of design, schematic design, design development, and construction documents phases.
