Quality Metro Data Center Expansion
Client: Quality Investment Properties
Size: 990,000 SF
Completion: December 2010
The Quality Technology Services Data Center is a 990,000 square foot facility and is the second largest data center in the world. This LEED Gold facility provides mission critical electrical, mechanical, and high capacity network systems. When build-out of the facility is completed, the building will yield approximately 547,000 SF of Data Center space. The expansive facility is supported by 80 megawatts of N+1 power capacity (3X40 MW Transformers) via an on-site Georgia Power substation and has 19 two-megawatt diesel generators with static UPS systems to provide over 20MWs of usable backup power.
JE Dunn was hired to build-out Phases II and III. We purchased the following equipment to install in the existing data center. We installed and commissioned the following:
Generators 16 2.5MW 13.8kV Units
2 sets of 15kV 1200A rated Paralleling Switchgear
Chillers - 2 2600 ton machines
UPS Systems 10.8MW of UPS Capacity
Unit Substations 8 sets for a total of 30 MVA
Output Distribution Switchboards 4 at 3000A 575V Each
Power Distribution Units 60 300kVA Units
We have installed 125,000 SF of 48' tall raised access flooring that will be ultimately built out to 200w/SF. We installed all necessary MEP infrastructure so that addition of future equipment on the raised floor will be no impact to the data center reliability.
