Tennessee State Primary Data Center
Client: The State of Tennessee
The State of Tennessee’s new Data Center will be home to more than 20 individual state agency data systems. A 49,000 sq. ft. Tier III state of the art facility with a new centralized data command center. The project consists of 13,000 square feet of raised floor area with ultimate capacity of over 120 watts per sq. ft. with the ability to double capacity in the future.
Electrical Infrastructure systems in this reliable facility are designed at N+1 system redundancy.
Mechanical cooling infrastructure is designed to N+1 redundancy with a waterless heat rejection plant to maximize efficiency of annual cooling cycles, take advantage of favorable utility rates, and eliminate reliance on water.
The main building structure is post-tensioned concrete, designed with an optimal 36’ column bay. The shell is fabricated from insulated precast concrete, designed to withstand hurricane and tornado force winds up to 200 mph.
Entry to this building is through a separated security ‘pavilion’, isolated from the main processing and infrastructure areas in line with the latest DOD guidelines for secure facilities.
Site design consists of a combination of perimeter security fencing and berms and/or retention basins to resist unwanted vehicular access to the building. The site has a single active gated entry point with and manned security booth.
