Gibson Electric provided high-end electrical construction solutions for the initial phase of T5 Data Centers’ campus in Elk Grove Village, IL.
During the project, Gibson met a challenging schedule and delivered on-time performance through extensive use of advanced Building Information Modeling (BIM) and detailed 4D planning.
T5 Data Centers set out to build a premier server-ready, multi-tenant enterprise data center campus for the Midwest. To accomplish this, the facility required N+1 electrical and mechanical topology combined with outstanding connectivity to all major cloud providers.
The initial project phase involved extensive electrical challenges in order to ensure the data center had a reliable power source. Gibson installed two separate 2.5-megawatt generators and four separate 1-megawatt uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). These systems support 40,000 square feet of white space along with 24,500 square feet of office space and support areas.
T5 Data Centers is an international company that operates cutting-edge data centers in locations across the globe.
