Verizon, Blue Hill Data Center

NOC expansion and mechanical/electrical upgrade

Great teamwork is important to the success of any project. We love the opportunity to be the prime consultant and lead the design team’s effort, and on these two (of many) projects we’ve worked on at Verizon’s Blue Hill Data Center, we have been the lead. We were responsible for leading the design team as well as managing Verizon’s scope, schedule and budget.

The first project was a 10,000 sq. ft. Network Operations Center expansion. Our engineering design responsibilities included a new HVAC system, including under floor variable air volume air distribution with individual control. We also upgraded the electrical infrastructure, which was integrated with the existing system without interruption to current operation.

The second project involved the upgrade of the data center’s electrical and mechanical capacity. Our mechanical scope included replacing twelve existing dry coolers on the roof. Our electrical design included a new 3x500kVA/450 module UPS system; draw-out type input switchgear configuration; draw-out type system static switch control switchgear configuration; multiple levels of bypass and complete wrap-around maintenance bypass; provisions for maintenance load banks; UPS-1B and UPS-1A sequence of operations and controls; draw-out insulated case type UPS output switchboard distribution with SKRU interlocking; four power centers with dual 225kVA PDUs and 208V static switch; and twelve remote power panels RPP with four input feeds, panels and tie-circuit breakers in each.
