FedEx – Data Center

This project was inclusive of building a new ground-up data center with a third-floor server build-out. This three-story 115,000-square-foot data center included a new central utility plant and a 1000-ton chiller plant. The facility is FedEx’s primary communications and data storage hub for its global operations.

As part of this project, only 20% of the usable data center space was to be built out, and 50% of the central plant was constructed. Provisions for future build-out were included in this phase. In addition, a new emergency generator plant was constructed. The plant is designed such that eight 1730 KW generators will provide emergency power – this phase included provisions for three generators.

Complete plumbing infrastructure was built out, including new core restrooms, as well as a network of drainage piping for all of the various air-conditioning and cooling units throughout the structure. And last, a new pedestrian connector was built, connecting the new data center to the existing adjacent office buildings.
