Data Center / Mission Critical
Kiewit understands the unique requirements of data center and mission-critical facilities construction. Reliability, ﬂexibility, redundancy and security are all essential to keeping a critical service facility up and running 24/7. Kiewit provides experienced teams who are involved at every stage of the project - from infrastructure development to single point-of-failure identiﬁcation to systems procurement, construction, start-up and commissioning. Our team ensures that nothing gets missed and eliminates project risk.
The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers awarded Kiewit Building Group a $27 million contract to build the new Air Force Weather Agency headquarters. The team constructed a four-story, 188,000-square-foot data center and office building to accommodate the Air Force’s global weather functions.
The Scott Technology Center Campus is a multi-stage project which consists of a high technology ofﬁce building/research center and Data Center. The facility is being certiﬁed by the Uptime Institute to a Tier III – Concurrent Maintainability status and will include most features of a Tier IV facility.
The Cabela’s Data Center is a single story, slab on grade, precast structure containing a 13,800 SF Tier III data center with extra tall ceiling, exterior mechanical courtyard, two bay loading dock and 1,300 SF of ofﬁce space. The building envelope was designed and built to withstand severe weather events and maintain an ideal interior environment, with no air or water inﬁltration in the data center space.
This project included the retroﬁt of existing computer classroom space into data center space. Project included the installation of two new generators and 1500 KVA/450KW UPS system. Project also included installation of APC in row cooling and power distribution system.
The iStructure Omaha project involved the construction of an 89,000 SF data center and ofﬁce facility on a fast-track schedule. The structural design of the facility integrated two approaches. The lower level was a case-hardened structure of poured-in-place concrete which has the ability to withstand 200 MPH wind shear.
The iStructure Tempe project involved the construction of a 60,000 SF building including a 31,000 SF state-of-the-art data center built to withstand the effects of a natural disaster. The facility infrastructure included multiple UPS systems, redundant generators, and a back-up water supply system.
