Value Delivered

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.

Client Objectives

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.
