General Dynamics Data Center

Managing a project team from start to finish in the construction of a new data center

Following the successful design and construction of the GDIT Global Network Operations Center, our team was asked to lead the consulting team on the design and construction of Gulfstream Aerospace's new data center facilities in Savannah, Georgia.

Working closely with Gulfstream Aerospace's Information Technology and Real Estate organizations, our team took a new approach to addressing uptime requirements and strategic, long-term IT needs. Our team created an on-campus primary site with a back-up, business continuity site. The project required a containerized, high-density server layout that met Gulfstream Aerospace's requirements to have a data center that was both reliable and scalable/modular. Our mechanical/electrical design included an in-row cooling system and associated emergency power and UPS systems.

Throughout the design phase and before final close-out, our commissioning team played an important role on this project. We performed functional testing of the critical systems to ensure that they were installed per the design drawings and would operate as intended. Going through this testing process gave Gulfstream Aerospace the peace of mind that if anything were to happen, their backup systems would prevent any downtime.
