Durham Bank Data Center Expansion

Renovation of 6,000 sq. ft. existing and 17,000 sq. ft. expansion. Eighteen air-cooled computer room air conditioning units serve the new data center, each MDF room, and the new UPS Room. A refrigerant piping distribution system for 22 air cooled in-row air conditioning units mounted directly in the high density equipment racks and their associated condensing units located on the roof.

  • A new under-floor leak detection system was provided around the perimeter of the new and existing data center.
  • A new 10,000-gallon double walled aboveground fuel tank was added to supplement the existing aboveground fuel tank. In addition, two new 600-gallon daytank systems were provided. The daytank fuel piping distribution system was designed to provide system redundancy; any of the four new generators can operate from either daytank. A new electronic system monitors the fuel system for inventory and leaks.
  • A FE-25 clean agent fire suppression system was installed throughout the new data center and MDF rooms. In addition, a double interlock pre-action dry pipe sprinkler system with dedicated zone valve was installed for both the new data center and the new UPS/generator rooms.
  • The design and construction were phased so that the existing data center could remain in operation while the 17,000 sq. ft. expansion was built.
