Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. - Data Center

Air Products' Data Center is a block structure with half of the building dedicated to mechanical and electrical systems while the other half is dedicated to the actual computer floor itself. The Data Center is considered to be a Level 9 Data Center having redundant systems or n+1 reliability. In some cases the mechanical systems are n+2.

In addition, the building is 100% automated. Extensive research went into the ability for the building systems (mechanical and electrical) to operate by itself, with no human involvement. In the event of a particular system failure, it will automatically switch over to the “spare” system.

The building was completed on schedule and within budget. Turnover was scheduled for February/March, and the move-in was scheduled for June. However, because of the aggressive schedule, APCI was able to expedite the move in date.
