DC6 Colocation Data Center | Northern Virginia | 2010
Colocation Data Center Sheehan Partners provided comprehensive architectural design services for construction of this colocation data center in northern Virginia. The building is designed around prototypical planning modules that consist of a one-story colocation computer room, a two story electrical equipment bar and a modest offi ce component. Generators are located in a screened outdoor yard. As part of a campus setting the building is designed to complement the adjacent buildings while providing a focal point for visitors to the site.
The building is framed in steel with architectural precast concrete exterior panels bearing on grade. Where wall panels are supported on the steel frame they are fi nished in metal panel to reduce the weight imposed on the structure. Equipment is screen by the use of an innovative perforated, ribbed metal panel. Insulated glazing is provided at offi ces and stairways.
