Get Your Data Center Ready to go live Sooner
Precast concrete’s off-site construction means you can build your structure while simultaneously getting the site ready for installation. Production never stops as it can continue year round no matter the climate. Forget weather delays, the controlled environment reduces the risk of unexpected schedule extensions.
Because of the controlled environment, a total precast data center can be cured within 48 hours of being poured. On the other hand, cast-in-place and tilt-up concrete construction takes up to 28 days to be cured.
A majority of the time, production steps like insulation, windows, and exterior design features can also be completed prior to the panels being delivered to your site. That means that once installation starts, it’s a quick turnaround for you to start utilizing the space.
Design Flexibility for Your Present and Future Workload
Designing a data center facility with precast concrete provides you with a high level of building flexibility. Our data center experts will work with you to design an open floorplan to maximize interior space, which can be easily expanded when growth is necessary.
The growth of your company is an important indicator of your success and the process of expansion should be easy and straightforward. Precast data center walls can be efficiently disassembled and rearranged with minimal construction disruption.
Achieve A High Return On Investment With Precast
With a lot of systems running at once, your data center needs to be able to control interior temperatures to reduce the risk of overheating. Designing a data center facility with precast concrete provides a strong thermal building envelope that reflects heat and reduces energy consumption.
The high thermal efficiency and the ability for continuous insulation means you can install smaller HVAC systems and ultimately reduce the heating and cooling costs within your facility.
The systems within your data center walls are critical. Precast concrete panels are storm, fire, and blast resistant to better protect your equipment. Since these panels are also resistant to mold, rot, and corrosion, you can expect fewer maintenance costs in the long run.
From the locally sourced and recycled materials to minimal waste from the process, a total precast data center is extremely sustainable compared to other construction methods. So, the return on your investment goes beyond saving costs, but allows you to build a greener future.
Data centers are increasingly under pressure for optimized operational performance and sustainability, which is why so many architects, designers, and end-users choose precast concrete as their build system of choice for their data center. Precast concrete is environmentally sound, economical to use and contributes to social responsibility. Since precast concrete data centers are built in a controlled environment, it reduces the volume of materials used and wasted. With precast concrete, there is repetition in construction processes like molds and forms, which helps to recycle and reuse materials. Precast concrete can also replace cementitious materials with recycled elements, such as glass.
