Agere Campus Microelectronics Data Center (Allentown, PA)
STV provided architectural and engineering design services for a 10,000-sf data center with an adjacent 500-sf lab and electrical equipment room for client Agere Systems. The firm prepared complete design including equipment layouts with additional floor space for mechanical and electrical support equipment and circulation aisles, access ramps, and steps included in the room footprints. Clean reliable power was provided for the servers, data storage equipment, and peripherals in the data center by two (N+1) 450kVA UPS and an 800kW standby generator. The air conditioning system was based on 30-ton chilled-water computer room air conditioning (CRAC) units with infrared humidification and electric re-heat coils, and provides conditioned air through a 36-inch high raised access floor.
