M. D. Anderson CPB Data Center Upgrade

  • Contractor: Vaughn Construction

  • Contract: $2,000,000

This project incorporated the expansion of the critical power systems in the hospital data center in order to provide MDA with adequate redundancy and room for future expansion.  This project was challenging because all work was performed within the limited space of the existing facility, and all work had to be done without taking the existing data center off line.

The scope of work included the expansion the the existing normal and emergency power switchgear, the installation of two additional 2000 amp automatic transfer switches, the installation of two 750kVA UPS systems, and 10 additional PDUs.  All equipment connections and feeders were new installation.  Equipment testing, coordination, and commissioning were also included in this scope.
