Project: Verio Data Center
San Jose, CA - 130,000 SF
KBD Group provided Design-Build services for the complete retrofit of a 130,000 SF data center in a two-story existing building. KBD Group was hired as the Design-Builder to replace another firm and took on all Design, Construction Management and General Contracting responsibilities to build a Premier Data Center for the Verio Corporation (now NTT/Verio). KBD Group needed to remove slab-on-grade and install 22 miles of electrical/communication conduit, completely remove the existing roof while protecting building during rainy season, complete seismic upgrade of roof, perform installation of complex control room and installation/commissioning/city inspection of four 2 mw generators. Crucial challenges included the technological complexities, the large work force on site and on-time completion â€“ all of which were met successfully.
