Bold Design Reflects Corporate Brand for Co-location Provider’s New Facility
vXchnge Holdings, LLC | Philadelphia Data Center (PA01) | Philadelphia, PA
Integrated Design Group collaborated with a young data center co-location company seeking to be a leader in the industry by providing their customers innovative, efficient, customized, secure and reliable computer environments. Global Branding Guidelines were developed by Integrated Design Group for implementation in new vXchnge facilities as they sought to expand their portfolio by entering into city centers within existing buildings. The Philadelphia Data Center is set primarily on the fifth floor of a multi-story building in downtown Philadelphia. The space presented many challenges, such as low floor to floor height, a location adjacent to a television broadcast studio, and has long distances between infrastructure spaces on the roof and basement. The design team collaborated with the engineers and client to overcome these challenges to achieve an efficient layout that maximizes IT cabinets, is easy to operate, and provides the customer experience standards set by the Global Branding Guidelines. This project was executed through a partnership with Burr Computer Environments Incorporated, who provides MEP engineering and construction management services, and apply the Global Branding Guidelines previously developed by Integrated Design Group.
