Security Princeton University standard card access system, with centrally-monitored closed-circuit TV system. Sustainability LEED Silver or equivalent
12 Program – Basis of Design General Information Near-term compute load is approximately 3,000 kW, projected day one build of 1,800 kW. The Phase 1 facility will consist of approx. 46,765 SF and will house a data center comprising a total of approx. 12,000 SF of access flooring at an electrical density of 150 W/sf expandable to 250 W/sf. Site Requirements Buildings shall be protected from vehicle breach via passive landscaping and/or protective bollards. A louvered wall shall be deployed to visually screen and restrict access to an exterior electrical/mechanical equipment yard. Shell and Structural Requirements The Phase 1 facility shall be a two-story structure comprising a total area of 46,765 sf with the possibility of expansion at some point in the future. The facility (including roof) shall be designed and constructed to IBC essential facility standards with an importance factor of 1.0 applied. Architectural Requirements The facility will include the following facilities; Lobby, Loading Dock, Shipping/Receiving, Staging, Staff Area, Electrical and Mechanical equipment rooms, Technology pod supporting compute capacity.
13 Program – Basis of Design – Cont. Electrical / Communications Requirements Electrical service to the site shall consist of a single utility feed capable of supplying the total facility load (approximately 4,800 kVA). On-site emergency generation shall be provided. Fuel oil storage shall be provided by an individual sub-base tank (sufficient to operate a 2.5 MW generator for 48 hours at rated load). Distribution of generator power shall be via an appropriate number of ATS to provide support for the critical power and cooling for each pod. The UPS plant consisting of (6) 750 KVA/675kW modules, in support of the 3.0 MW pod, deployed as follows: The 3.0 MW technology pod shall be powered from (6) 750kVA/675kW UPS modules installed in an N+1 configuration, including a fully rated static and wrap around maintenance bypass to facilitate maintenance activity. The initial 1.8 MW deployment shall require (4) 750 kVA/675 kW modules installed in an N+1 configuration. UPS batteries shall be of the VRLA type and provide 15 minutes of holdover at rated load in the event of a utility outage. Power resiliency for the HVAC systems shall be consistent with an N+1 resilient environmental conditioning plant. Transient Voltage Surge Suppression (TVSS), an equi-potential grounding system, and a Master Label Certified Lightning Protection system will be installed.
14 Program – Basis of Design – Cont. Mechanical / Fire Protection Requirements Cooling for the technology spaces and their supporting infrastructure pods shall consist of central plant deployed in an N+1 equipment configuration in support of central AHUs and water-cooled racks in the HPC environment. The chiller plant will be capable of supporting the anticipated energy densities of the facility. Leak detection and spill containment provisions shall be deployed. Chilled and condenser water piping shall be looped. Chilled water conveyance within the technology pods shall include 4 supply / 4 return taps to allow for the addition of a 4 loop dedicated to chilled water cabinets/in-row conditioners. Chilled water conveyance shall be equipped with VFD equipped pumps, deployed consistent with fault tolerant requirements. Installation of a dual-interlock pre-action fire suppression system with code compliant heat and smoke detection at the ceiling level and beneath the access floor. Each technology pod, electrical/mechanical room, and staff area shall be on a separate pre-action zone. Smoke detectors shall be of the addressable, high sensitivity (HSSD) type. A comprehensive building automation controls system including but not limited to monitoring and control of all critical mechanical and electrical infrastructure components and cabinet-level electrical circuit monitoring. The system shall be such that in the event of a BMS failure, all controls should fail to the last setting with subsequent manual adjustment capability.
15 Program – Basis of Design – Cont. Security Requirements The building shall have one intercom equipped main entrance, monitored and controlled by security staff and accessible to resident staff via card reader. Code mandated egress shall be alarmed and equipped with an internal crash bar. Such doors shall not be equipped with external hardware. CCTV shall be strategically deployed at the building perimeter and doors, in the lobby, loading dock, circulation corridors, infrastructure rooms and throughout the technology pods. Cameras shall be equipped with PTZ and motion detection functionality. Image storage shall be digital with a capacity of 30 days inherent retention per camera. The presumed number of cameras shall be determined through the design process but will provide internal and external coverage. Card access to the facility from the lobby shall be via card reader. Access to technology and infrastructure spaces shall also be via card reader. Facility Commissioning Requirements All installed systems shall require integrated testing and full system commissioning. Facility Telecommunications Requirements An appropriately sized point-of-entry and riser for telecommunications utilities. Provide a concrete encased duct-bank for incoming telecom services from the street to the POE.
