Red Hat

Design of infrastructure and interiors systems for a new building

During the challenging economy of recent years, fewer new construction projects were being undertaken. But when Red Hat needed space to accommodate their growing team, they decided to build their own building. We designed the MEP systems for the core and shell of the building, and then had the opportunity to also design the interior spaces in the building. The interior design included office space and a 5,000 sq. ft. data center. 

The MEP systems required included two 150-ton roof top units to serve the office space, in row cooling and a new 300-ton air cooled chiller to support the data center. The project also included a new 2.5 megawatt generator system to provide backup power to the facility, including both the office space and data center.
