Swinerton to Build Wholesale Data Center in Las Vegas

Swinerton Builders was awarded a contract by Telecom Real Estate Services (TRES) to build a large data center in Las Vegas for the wholesale market.

The Tier III TRES Block Data Center project involves the conversion of an existing warehouse on a 5-acre parcel.  Large customers can construct their own data center space within a fully managed building with all the backup facilities.  Four blocks of 1200 kW of critical power are available in Phase 1 with total capacity of 1125 racks.

The modular design allows for a high degree of flexibility for potential tenants, and the utilization of custom direct indirect air handlers allow for a low Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and a corresponding reduction in operating costs.
