Project Details

This site expansion was undertaken with an accelerated schedule to help accommodate increased customer demand for DLR in the Chicago area. The existing two-story building was “hardened” and expanded to incorporate cooling and power upgrades as well as increase customer space and security.

PASE helped the owner balance and calibrate the new data center loads with existing capacities and developed a seismic design philosophy to meet DLR’s needs and those of future customers. A significant amount of collaboration was done with the DLR sales team to help provide for anticipated customer needs and easily provide accessible information for sales support.
