Qlogic Corporation Data Centers
A large manufacturer of data, server, and storage networking components, QLogic moved into a new two-story, 120,000 SF building near Minneapolis, Minnesota. After working with the Client to determine appropriate Data Center Tier based on operational needs, the firm provided space planning for a 35-cabinet data center with an 18-inch raised floor, redundant UPS systems and a generator connection point for a trailer-mounted portable standby generator. Power and HVAC systems are designed to be concurrently maintainable, avoiding the need for system shutdown during maintenance. tk1sc provided mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering consulting and telecommunications design services for this project.
