Data Center Commissioning and Design

Yahoo! undertook an ambitious project to design and build a new data center in Lockport, NY. The facility supports 20 megawatts of electric power as well as a reliable system of communication lines, natural gas, water distribution, stormwater drainage and wastewater collection infrastructure. Proximity and convenient access to transportation systems were also necessary. During phase 1 of the construction, Wendel impressed the client with thorough Mechanical and Electrical commissioning services. The team was rewarded with further design and commissioning responsibilities in phase 2 of construction, and earned design work on the second facility, a 200,000 square foot, 20 megawatt data center to be built on an adjacent site.
