Data Centers

Location: Philadelphia, PA 


General Overview: The 1,000,000+ sq. ft, facility is Sungard’s Philadelphia mega center that currently has approximately 550,000 sq. ft. of leased space. 4,100 tons of chilled water capacity provides conditioning to data center space with the ability to provide free cooling via Evapco dry coolers. Eight 2,000 kW and one 1,750 kW diesel generators with a total of 32,000 gallons of fuel provide a backup power source for the equipment. Pre-action sprinkler systems, VESDA, and underfloor gas extinguishing systems provide protection of the critical systems

Special MEP/FP Features:AEI has been providing MPFP assistance for Sungard’s Philadelphia 401 Data Center over the last 15 years. This site’s biggest triumph was successfully consolidating 3 separate chiller plants into one system supporting 5 floors of Data Center with a single shutdown. We are currently involved with Sungard’s heat map program where older chillers and CRAC units are undergoing a planned replacement to maintain capacity and reliability.
