Project Name: CyrusOne Phoenix Data Center/Chandler
CyrusOne, located in Chandler, will be the largest data center in Arizona with a one million square-foot campus on a 57-acre site at final build out. One of the most efficient data centers of its kind, it has achieved a LEED Silver designation and features highly efficient power and cooling, as well as enhanced security and fire protection systems.
General Contractor: J.E. Dunn Construction
Start/End Dates: May 2012 – December 2012
Project Manager: Joe Storace
Mechanical Design Engineer: AHA Consulting Engineers
Bel-Aire Mechanical was contracted to provide the design assistance and installation of a 36-inch raised floor white space with indirect evaporative cooled air handling units supplemented when required by a chilled water plant consisting of highly efficient multiple 500 ton air cooled chillers with fast restart and adaptive controlled microprocessors and redundant water feeds.
The Phoenix Data Center is being commissioned at unprecedented speed using CyrusOne’s “Massively Modular” design philosophy. Massively Modular enables CyrusOne to commission large data center facilities in approximately 16 weeks. Aggressive sourcing enables a speedy commissioning of the site, which in turn enables CyrusOne to deliver inventory just in time to match customer demands.
The first building, which was commissioned near the end of 2012, has 46,000 square feet of raised floor and another 46,000 square feet that will come online in 2013. There is also room for seven or eight more buildings on this phased campus, providing the CyrusOne Phoenix Data Center tremendous opportunities for growth.
