When a large airline provider was looking to construct a new central data center and consolidate their current global operations management capabilities, they hired real estate development manager Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) to start planning a structure built for strength and reliability. JLL, in term, hired the project participants to design and construct buildings with superb structural stability and with the capability to resist earthquake and EF4 tornado loading.
The resulting total precast project was composed of three separate structures: a generator building, the data hall and an administration complex. The generator and data hall buildings were on a short time table and needed to be completed quickly to house equipment scheduled to be shipped.
Precast concrete components utilized for the structures include insulated wall panels with multiple architectural finishes, double tees, hollow-core plank, and precast beams and columns. The project is designed for future expansion.
