Intergen

Helping a client make smart business decisions

This global power generation company was looking for a team to help them make smart strategic business decisions about their new US corporate headquarters. We were very pleased to be asked to be part of their team. One of the ways that we helped them make smart business decisions was by preparing scope, schedule, and cost comparisons which InterGen used as the basis for their decision to send their critical computer systems off-site to a collocation facility.  

Their office space included office space, conference rooms, video conference rooms, a café, and a new server room and IDF room.

The server room required specialty systems, including a 30 kVA uninterruptible power supply (UPS), pre-action sprinkler system, and supplemental cooling. The IT design included a flexible Cat6 cabling plant and fiber-optic backbone to interconnect the server and IDF room. The security design included a new access control and video monitoring system which enables InterGen to manage visitor access.  It also provides video security at all points of entry and high-value areas.
