Confidential PRN1 Data Center

Overview 

TCM, a wholly owned subsidiary of Southland Industries, provided mechanical, plumbing, and piping interior improvements for a pre-existing building on a data center campus located in rural Oregon. 

After populating their first 40 MW facility in Prineville, OR, the client continued to hone its networking architecture, resulting in demands for cooling in portions of the data halls. This need led to necessitating decisive improvements. 

Approach 

With the goal of eliminating the concentration of heat from critical areas and allowing for the building existing cooling systems to better provide the required cooling, TCM expertly executed the work in the operating data center with zero interruption to the client’s daily operations. 

To meet the project goals, TCM installed new exhaust fans and in-place measurement for associated ductwork. To increase efficiency, duct fabrication was performed at TCM’s Portland, OR shop and then shipped 150 miles to the project site for coordinated installation—which often included connection to existing and operating data processing 

Results

Due to extensive planning and coordination with other trade partners, TCM successfully and safely completed work without a single interruption to ongoing, daily operations.
