This project is a new $54 million dollar, two-story data storage design and support facility located on the Wichita State University Innovation Campus. The 168,000 s.f facility houses NetApp offices, a 9,000 s.f. data lab, a bench lab testing room, a full-service commercial kitchen with associated dining rooms, an exercise center, and a two-story glass atrium entry mall. ICE designed the MEP systems to meet LEED Gold standards. The office HVAC systems are high-efficiency packaged VAV rooftop units with fan-powered and single duct terminal units with a combination of gas pre-heat and hot water final heating capacity. The data lab areas were designed with redundant specialized rooftop units to provide the airflow required for the data racks while minimizing energy usage and maximizing rack flexibility. Low-flow plumbing fixtures were utilized throughout to minimize water usage. Lighting systems were designed as power over ethernet (POE) systems for energy efficiency, lighting control, future flexibility and enhanced data-gathering capabilities. Redundant electric power services were designed in conjunction with an on-site emergency generator and uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to provide continuous, uninterrupted power for the building.
“Schedules are tight, but they meet project deadlines and communicate well throughout the project. I can call, text, or email them anytime, and they will respond to my questions. We can be very demanding on our project partners, and Integrated Consulting Engineers always comes through with their promises.”Dj McClenny Crossland Construction Co.
