Concrete tilt-up construction building.


Electrical system consists of two 3+1 systems (3 primary buses with 1 reserve bus for each system). Each primary bus has one 2000kW Caterpillar generator and three 500kVA MGE UPS. Each reserve bus has two 2000kW Caterpillar generators in parallel and three 500kVA MGE UPS in parallel. Power Management Module (PMM) receives power from two different UPS source (primary and reserve). Power transfer from primary to reserve will be seamless (within 4 ms, ¼ cycle).


25 Roof Top Units supply cooling for the raised floor areas. Units’ power feed are equally distributed across all electrical buses with sufficient capacity to withstand one electrical bus failure. HVAC features include VFD for the supply fans, steam humidification, 100% air-side economizer, exhaust fans to control building pressure, air supplied through ceiling mounted diffusers and a 24-inch raised floor, and an integrated building monitoring system. NODE has separate computer room air conditioning units (CRAC) in N+1 configuration.


XO Communications, On Fiber, Verizon, Pacific Bell, and AT&T provide fiber; Pacific Bell provides copper.
Fire Detection and Suppression
VESDA provides early warning detection; dual interlock pre-action fire sprinkler system. Two initiating device inputs, area heat detector and loss of air pressure, are required to activate water to flow into the pipe. Under normal operation, the sprinkler pipe contains no water.


Each generator has one 3,000-gallon belly tank. In addition, there are four 12,000-gallon aboveground storage convault tanks. Fuel capacity allows generators to operate continuously for up to 72 hours at full load. System features include fuel polishing capabilities and the Veeder Root system that monitors tank levels and leak detection.

Building Monitoring System Description Dimax Building Management System monitors and controls HVAC system and mission critical electrical equipment.


Building grounding system exceeds NEC and IEEE standards. A separate zero reference ground system installed.
