Identifying potential risks and confirming assumptions are critical pieces in determining data center feasibility for our clients
In anticipation of building a data center, our client engaged us to help them determine the feasibility of construction on their selected site. Our role as their partner included everything from studies and surveys, to liaising with the appropriate utilities, to permitting and approvals, detailed design, and beyond.
Following a kickoff meeting and elaboration of a project schedule, we completed a detailed due diligence study of the site focused on civil, electrical, mechanical, and environmental issues. This was followed by a fatal flaw analysis from which a risk identification matrix was determined. Confirming assumptions associated with distribution routing connections to extending nearby transmission lines was a key step considering available capacity, necessary upgrades both upstream and downstream of the main substation, reliability, power quality, and timing required to meet near term and long-term power needs.
We supported our client by interfacing with the appropriate municipalities to confirm zoning and denote areas of potential risk related to current and anticipated future zoning. This allowed us to deliver a conceptual layout that depicts buildings, utility yards, electrical infrastructure, road infrastructure, code required infrastructure, required setbacks, floor area ration, coverage ratio, and more.
