Central Plant

A 4,170 ton chiller plant and 1,200 bhp hot water plant designed for N+1 redundancy supporting the complex. The chiller plant includes a dedicated air-cooled emergency chiller designed to provide cooling to mission-critical spaces during a normal power outage utilizing the primary distribution piping throughout the building. Both chiller and boiler plants connect to Phase I and Phase II buildings to provide emergency cooling and heating for the entire complex.


Communications systems including category 6 and 50 micron fiber horizontal distribution systems throughout the entire building, being fed from a raised access floor system. The backbone of the system is a completely redundant service via separate pathways to 39 communications rooms serving the building. Building service fiber optic connections are distributed from multiple locations, via new and existing ductbanks, providing redundant services and completing a campus wide network loop. Multiple server rooms of varying classifications are also located in the building.


Intrusion detection, access control, video surveillance systems, intercom, pedestrian traffic and screening, vehicle crash rated barrier and traffic control systems, and a six person security console.
