To accommodate customer timelines, TierPoint needed to convert the existing 6th floor office space into a new raised-floor data center, with minimum N+1 redundancy across all critical systems, and have it powered in 11 weeks.
TierPoint Data Centers
Schneider Electric Data Center Life Cycle Services engaged specialized experts to facilitate innovative solutions to some of the more unique challenges, providing a fully integrated build solution for TierPoint - including programming, design and engineering, construction and final integrated facility commissioning.
As an active, multi-tenant building, Schneider Electric Data Center Life Cycle Services and other expert contractors in the project team had to make accommodations to avoid interruption of power and chilled water services to other tenants during construction. As an additional complication frequently encountered in retrofit projects, contingencies had to be made by Schneider Electric Data Center Life Cycle Services to work within existing control structures as the project progressed. With TierPoint’s tight security, electrical, and scheduling requirements, there wasn’t much room for compromise.
