Expansions to Operations Facility Benefits from an Integrated Solution

Citizens Bank | East Providence Operations Center | East Providence, RI


Since 2003, Integrated Design Group has executed several facility upgrades and large data center expansions within their East Providence Operations Center due to rapid business acquisitions and internal growth. Most notable are the two data center projects. The first completed in 2005 was building addition that added 10,000 sf of raised floor and2MW of power in 1MW blocks. This project doubled the raised fl oor area, with significant dedicated new infrastructure, was required without impacting ongoing operations. In 2010, another 5,000 sf for computer rack space at a much higher density was required. Both times, proximity to the existing raised fl oor (making new and old contiguous) meant placing
the additional data centers in the area near the site entry. Through careful planning and architectural design the data centers are both invisible and secure to the public. Building these projects on a short construction schedule, and directly next to the continuously operating existing data center, meant careful coordination of architects and engineers.
