Recovery Data Center

Automated Systems and Controls Enable Precise Cooling.

Spencer Bristol Engineering provided MEP design engineering for the installation of new HVAC, electrical, and control systems in a customer’s recovery data center. Project design included a modular chiller plant providing N+1 cooling to the data center floor, along with a traditional central chiller plant providing N+1 cooling to the backup recovery unit office areas. An innovative scheme of automated control valves allowed any chiller to provide cooling to all areas of the facility, resulting in redundancy greater than 2N.
