  • Square Footage


  • Baker Group Scope


  • Year Completed


As part of Client C’s restructuring of their information systems, they decided to reduce their computer centers from 100 down to four large regional data centers for all Client C owned companies. Baker Group performed the mechanical retrofit of an existing office building into a combination office and data center. Fitting the data center into an existing facility, with structural steel height limitations, required a very efficient layout to allow 3 foot of raised floor, server racks, piping, and electrical distribution. During the remodel, Baker Group maintained operation of the existing data center while relocating mechanical equipment from the penthouse to a new mechanical room.

This large data center currently has a cooling capacity of 750 tons, with expansion capability up to 1,250 tons of cooling. Cooling is delivered under floor from 9 Liebert down-flow AC units, supplemented by 2 Liebert XDP units and 16 in-row XDV units. This was the second Liebert Extreme Density (XD) in-row cooling system to be installed in Iowa. This system is also capable of winter free cooling utilizing a plate and frame heat exchanger.

Client C knew, if anyone was up to this challenge, it would be Baker Group.
