The Next Technology Center 2 is a state-of-the-art 253,000-square-foot concurrently maintainable data center. It boasts a number of features such as 66,000 GSF white/data floor in six modules. Designed to N+2 electrical system with EPA compliant generator plant, this facility is equipped with 2N chiller plant (each plant with 4,650 tons chilled water) and can withstand 207 mph wind velocity. Mortenson implemented 3D/4D modeling technology to improve design, constructability and reduce costs.
The installation of over 120 miles of underground conduit over 254,000 GSF of clay soils during severe winter conditions posed a significant project challenge. To resolve these issues, Mortenson developed and implemented a well-orchestrated plan that included systematic ground thawing, precision soil installation and open area temporary enclosure systems that allowed productive work and protection from the freezing elements.
