State of Colorado – Lakewood Data Center
The Lakewood Data Center project was a design-build 10,000 square-foot data center upgrade completed for the State of Colorado. It included an upgrade of the existing main electrical room, including the demolition of a 3,000 amp Main Distribution Board, 3,000amp Automatic Transfer Switch, 625KVA UPS and Batteries, and additional panelboards and transformers. All replaced with a new 3000A Main distribution board, 3000A ATS with a closed transition maintenance bypass switch, two new 1000KVA UPS’s with Lithion ION batteries and UPS maintenance bypass cabinet and additional panelboard. The Data Center remained active for the duration of construction with no unplanned outages. Two complex 8-hour power outages were required for switching power to and from the emergency generator in order to complete the demolition of existing equipment.
