HCL Technologies Ltd. (HCL), one of India's leading global IT services company, acquired a 35,000 square foot data center facility in Parsippany, New Jersey. HCL needed to renovate half of the existing building to provide for collocation space for their turnkey hosting services business, while housing their data center in the other half.
The LEED-CI Silver Certified facility is one of the few LEED Certified data centers in the Country and was designed with mission critical systems conforming to the Uptime Institute's TIER III guidelines and by deploying best-in-class eco-friendly technologies. The 8,000 SF of raised data center floor provides 150 w/SF of critical power distribution.
gkkworks was selected to provide both design and construction services in order to satisfy their schedule constraints and allow for an open book GMP project management. This allowed for competitive bidding and client involvement throughout the process. We established an aggressive project schedule to accomplish project goals, such as migrating the existing data center into the new space.
