Data Center Renovation and Expansion

Somerville, Massachusetts

This tier-3 data center is a single-use facility dedicated to providing co-location services. The facility provides highly secure and available IT infrastructure for businesses, so they can focus on their company’s objectives and spend less time managing their IT systems. In response to a growing co-location market, Internap expanded its existing facility. TG Gallagher, working in a design-assist manner, installed a new HVAC system and a pulse humidification system for the 15,000 SF addition.  To maximize energy efficiency, free cooling usage was incorporated throughout the design. As emergency power is critical in tier-3 facilities, TG Gallagher also provided key input on the layout and installation of the fuel oil system that supplies the generator.
