18 National Institute of Health (NIH) Data Center Upgrade Bethesda, MD Square Footage 25,000sf Tier Classification Tier III Design Consultants CCG Facilities Integration WFT Engineering Tishman served as Design/Builder to the National Institute of Health for a complex upgrade to their operational data center facility in Bethesda. In addition to procuring new switchboards, Tishman installed four Hitec Rotary CPS (continuous power source) units. An exterior 4,000 square-foot elevated steel platform (with louvered fencing and partial metal roof) was be constructed on augered piles to house the CPS units and shelter the transformers and associated network protectors. The second phase of the project expanded the capacity of the UPS systems to provide N+2 redundancy. Three rotary UPS (uninterruptible power source) units provide the minimum redundancy required to achieve the designed system capacity (2,880 KVA NO-Break and 1,400 KVA Short-Break). Once commissioned, Tishman oversaw the transfer of electrical services to this new configuration. Cooling was installed for the expanded digital static transfer switch room. The electrical work includes three source static transfer switches, containerized continuous power system, modifications to fire alarm systems. A large consideration in the project was the commissioning. Tishman included as a team member a commissioning agent, CCG, to assist with the design, provide power and fault studies, prepare the commissioning scripts and execute the level 5 commissioning. The system configuration and redundancies required close attention to the details. The third phase of the project entailed the procurement and installation of one CPS unit, electrical feeders, fuel oil piping, security fence, stonewall and landscaping.

These projects were completed without a single interruption to operations of the data center. Square Footage 125,000sf Tier Classification Tier IV Design Consultants Integrated Design Group
24 Bank of New York Mellon Tennessee Processing Center Nashville, TN Tishman constructed a new two-story, 165,000-squarefoot Tier IV data center for Bank of New York Mellon on a greenfield site in Nashville. The facility supports 56,000 square feet of white space with 2N mechanical and electrical infrastructure. Construction was slated to begin when the costs and lead times for structural steel were at all time highs. Tishman, with our client s approval, explored alternative structural systems that could lower the total cost of the building and compress the project schedule and after a thorough evaluation we recommended poured-in-place concrete columns instead of steel. Also, during the course of this investigation, Tishman discovered that the depth of the column footings was not sufficient to handle the amount of conduit that was supposed to be buried beneath the slab. So, Tishman supervised a redesign of the footings. Tishman also recommended an Epicore Roof Deck system because it enables all piping and conduit to be hung from the roof without penetrating the water tight seal of the deck itself.
