The continued emphasis this week was the removal of all demolition debris from the space so that new construction could begin. The ceilings are very nearly cleared of the old drywall, the supporting ceiling framework, extraneous wire, and flex air ducts for the VAV diffusers. The underlying concrete ceiling, which we will leave exposed in some areas, is in far better shape than anyone imagined.
Framing for our new walls began in earnest this week, beginning from the rear of the facility. The new break area and private office walls are in place, and two of the future data center walls were started.
The emphasis for the week of July 23rd will be to remove all remaining unnecessary HVAC ductwork and plumbing, and reroute the remainder outside the data center perimeter. One such (and extremely large) duct was found very nearly in the center of the planned data center path. This duct will be re-routed outside the data center so that the hot air return plenum will be completely unobstructed.
By the end of next week I suspect that the space will really begin to take shape, and we’ll be able to “see” where things are going to go. Something that everyone notices right away when they visit is how much bigger the future Data Center is going to be. Having a Data Center that is perfectly balanced in terms of square footage, power capacity, and cooling capacity is something we’ve wanted for a very long time. We took extraordinary care to engineer it that way.
