C Spire

(770) 569-1706

Pieper O'Brien Herr Architects designed this award winning, world-class Tier 3+, data center. This center joined an elite group as one of only 16 commercially available facilities in the U.S. with a Tier 3 or 4 rating. The precast concrete structure was designed to withstand 145 mph wind speed and is clad with thin brick for an improved appearance.

Concept Design Model:


20-13038 View of Main Entry FROM DRIVE

Six operator’s manage the center from the Strategic Operations Control Room and have direct views into the data hall. Two 2,500KW generators maintain redundant power and are protected from catastrophic events with a 14’ tall, precast concrete screen wall.

The facility was designed with minimal roof penetrations, limiting the potential for water roof leaks. A security turnstile at the entrance prevents intruders from gaining entry by ‘tail-gating’. A full glass view into the data hall gives the conference room a dramatic backdrop.
