Hyperscale Data Centers

Design for Manufacturing (DFM) – Cost savings and improved constructability are key considerations in the manufacturing industry. Hyperscale data centers utilize hundreds of space frames carrying piping, bus ducts, and ductwork, so verifying capacity and designing the necessary steel supports is critical. PEC collaborates with owners to speed up the process by standardizing frame members and connections to reduce the number of weld sets and materal variations.

Electrical Heat Calculations – Efficiency and streamlined processes are vital. PEC prepares heat calculations from duct bank wiring, conduits, and busways, eliminating miscalculations and the need to upsize equipment that increases costs. Hyperscale data centers are required to oversize feeders that exceed 90°C. PEC limits this need by adjusting the depth and spacing of duct banks and the thickness of fill and concrete.
