Designing Digital Realty’s Needham Data Center
Integrated Design Group is currently working on the design of Digital Realty’s new 130,000 SF data center in Needham, MA. Due to the challenging site conditions, the design calls for a multi-story building with the entire infrastructure either inside the building or on the roof. The mechanical system takes advantage of Boston’s cool climate and provides significant free cooling hours.
This project was highlighted at this month’s Data Center Boom event hosted by Real Estate BisNow at the Needham Sheraton as it is a major new construction project in the state and a prime example of the burgeoning data center market in Boston.
Construction is expected to be completed in August 2013. Until then, you can tour the site virtually by clicking on the image below. For information about renting data center space from Digital Realty by visiting: http://datacenters.digitalrealtytrust.com/datacenters?country=US
