The Balfour Beatty | DPR | Big-D joint venture, with KlingStubbins and Architectural Nexus as design partners, provided design-build services to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the Utah Data Center at Camp Williams, UT.
The $1.2 billion, design-build project involved design and construction services for a data center in Utah. The facility consists of approximately 1.4 million square feet; a 100,000-square-foot mission critical data center with raised flooring and 1.3 million square feet of technical support and administrative space. Ancillary supporting facilities include, but are not limited to, water treatment facilities (pre and post), electrical sub-station(s), vehicle inspection facility, visitor control center, perimeter site security measures, fuel storage, water storage, chiller plant, fire suppression systems and 100% electrical generator and UPS back up capacity. The project has been designed and constructed on a fast-track basis.
The project was designed and constructed in the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS) / Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility Guidelines and Antiterrorism Force Protection (AT/FP) standards. Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) was an integral part of design consideration. The facility received its LEED Silver certification through the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED rating system.
The facility showcases numerous innovative technology and energy efficiency features. In addition, the team maximized the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools to help facilitate collaboration and coordination of all project aspects both during design and during construction.
