Subsequent to preparing a data center needs assessment of the existing NMH data center, WMA was retained for the design of a new data center facility. The new critical facility systems included a 300 kVA “2N” isolated redundant UPS system expandable to 600 kVA, redundant back-up power feeders from the remote generator system plant, redundant critical electrical risers within the building, dual-input power distribution units, and redundant distribution to server racks. The mechanical systems included split-system air conditioning units with N+1 redundancy, and preaction fire protection sprinkler systems.
