Confidential MWH02 Data Center

Overview

TCM, a wholly owned subsidiary of Southland Industries, performed plumbing, piping, sheet metal, building automation system (BAS), fuel oil, generator exhaust stack, and set equipment work for a new confidential data center project in Quincy, Washington. 

Approach

The project scope included work on 2 administrative buildings and 4 data halls, which support 32 MW of power, 160 custom air handling units (CAHUs), 16 cooling towers, 20 generator exhaust stacks, 16 dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS), 10 fuel cabinets, and 2 rooftop units. 

To increase efficiency, extensive pipe spooling and duct fabrication was conducted in TCM’s Portland, OR shops. TCM also used prefabrication and BIM to help identify potential work clashes prior to field work beginning. 

Additionally, by adapting to working with multiple electrical contractors and determining an optimal work schedule, TCM was able to work through weather delays, budget issues, and coordination challenges to still meet the demanding rigors of Level 5 commissioning. 

Results

Overall, TCM successfully supported the construction of this new data center while adhering to strict confidentiality and efficiently working with other contractors.
