University of the District of Columbia Relocation of the Van Ness Campus Data Center
University of the District of Columbia
UDC Data Center
As part of its comprehensive plan to renovate, modernize, or otherwise improve the campus wide information technology system, the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) hired Alphatec to relocate the existing Data Center. The design team creatively located and developed an existing underutilized storage space to house the new relocated Data Center within Building 56 Level C. The new Data Center location will allow for a robust, modular and flexible design, and will be a productive environment that hosts UDC's most critical applications and intellectual property.
All new MEP system components provide durability, the least degree of maintenance, and longevity while complimenting the building’s existing building approach. The integrated design team also ensured that new mechanical systems are energy efficient at peak load conditions and arranged to also allow for such efficiency during part load conditions and without undue equipment short-cycling that may be detrimental to their expected longevity.
