Data Center Expansion

Children's Hospital Boston
Boston, Massachusetts

Offering a complete range of health care services, Children's Hospital Boston is one of the largest pediatric medical centers in the country. MRI’s, X-rays, and other electronically robust documents that are transmitted between doctors, hospitals, research institutions, etc., require substantially more bandwidth and data storage capacity than simple medical forms entail. In order to accommodate these data requirements, Children’s Hospital Boston underwent a 7,500 SF renovation and expansion of their existing “off-site” data center. TG Gallagher was selected by Tishman to provide the HVAC and plumbing services for the data center expansion. The upgrades included relocating and installing six new computer room air conditioning units with associated chilled water supply and return piping.  TG Gallagher worked closely with Children’s Hospital Boston’s IT and facilities staff to ensure continuous operation as the new equipment was brought on-line and integrated with the existing data center. Close coordination was required by all parties to allow the Hospital to continue and expand on its critical mission.
