County Data Center

California

This client teamed with Gensler to design a facility that is more than just a technology box. Nestled into landscaped earthen berms, the 56,000-square-foot data center creates a park environment for an often fortress-like building type. The thoughtful design will obscure the size and location of the building, enhancing the work environment of the surrounding campus. Visible architecture will be limited to the entrance lobby and office space that enjoy natural daylight and other sustainable design features. A LEED®-NC rating is being pursued for this project.

Technical highlights:
—Tier III data center with N+1 redundancy
—Modular sizing of mechanical and electrical systems support incremental growth
