Demolition of our new facility space continued this week. All the ceiling fixtures have come down, the drywall is 75% down, and half of the interior glass has been removed. Work will resume Monday. By the end of next week I expect the ceilings to be 100% accessible and all the interior walls to be down.
We had multiple meetings this week with the GC and the sub-contractors. A lot of time was spent talking through many power distribution options, and cabling inside the data center. We finally settled our fire suppression questions, opting for an FM-200 system. Internally, our teams continued to build and refine their plans to oversee the project, perform test and checkout on the finished data center facility, and migrate people and equipment after construction is complete.
We encountered a few surprises this week, none more surprising than plumbing where we didn’t expect it because it never showed up on any of the drawings provided to us by the building owner. Consequently, we had to make a couple of design changes. Fortunately, the changes were easy to make, and they led to an improved design. Never underestimate the value of accurate “as built” diagrams.

A company is only as good as the people who work there. And in Donet's case, those people are simply exceptional. Bright. Inventive. Rock-solid.
