Project: Telehouse Communications Network Complex
Staten Island, NY - 162,000 SF
KBD Group provided Design-Build services for this 162,000 SF "intelligent" Communications and Telecommunications Network Complex in Staten Island, New York. This $35 million project required extensive preconstruction coordination to accommodate multiple telecommunication systems including data cabling, computer rooms, mini-computer rooms, raised floors, dual electrical system, complete cooling system, security vault, state of the art energy management, security and life-safety systems, and UPS systems with emergency generators.
This facility is Telehouse's headquarters and home to its Customer Assistance Center, which is staffed 24/7 and has never lost critical power due to N+1 redundancy throughout all systems. Advanced security equipment has been installed due to the significant facility and 7x24 operation. Security features include infrared detectors with video, CCTV, motion detection with video, electronic card and biometric access points.
