The TD Data Centre project involved the renovation and reconfiguration of a single-storey building. The four-phased project included construction of a data centre, office space, washroom and facility upgrades, along with a new main entrance. Extensive exterior landscaping was undertaken, as was installation of security systems. Full LEED® requirements were also achieved.
Structural reinforcement of the existing building structure included concrete foundations, suspended concrete slabs, and structural steel. Carbon fibre-reinforced polymers were used to reinforce existing suspended concrete components.
The architectural features of the building provided a secure entrance configuration, specialized glass products, access flooring and interior finishes. Exterior work introduced extensive decorative steel fencing, operable gates, landscaping, patterned concrete paving, and granite walkways.
Mechanically, the existing systems were replaced and upgraded with a cooling tower modification, new chillers, glycol and air cooling equipment, distribution systems, controls, fueling and fire protection systems.
Additional electrical services were added for upgraded power requirements, as well as generating equipment, main electrical switchboards, distribution equipment, lighting, and a fire alarm. Originally scheduled to be a four-phase job, a fifth phase was added by the client towards the end of the project. This work included the transformation of warehouse and recreational areas into suitable spaces for client-related programs and services.
- New main entrance provides a secure entrance configuration;
- Carbon fiber reinforced polymers were used to reinforce existing suspended concrete components; and
- Minimized disruptions to ongoing building operations, accessibility, and security requirements.
