CCG Facilities Integration, A Morrison Hershfield Company

Innovating Mission Critical Systems

DuPont Fabros Technology
ACC5 Technology Center

Project Overview

Based on the newest prototype design developed by CCG, the DuPont Fabros Technology ACC5 Technology Center is one of the largest data centers in the United States.

This Tier IV data center possesses extremely robust mechanical, electrical and communications a system with over 200 W/SF of critical power density, and is designed with modular flexibility utilizing CCG’s patented “Isolated–Parallel” power configuration.   The ACC5 facility is a single-story pre-cast shell structure, constructed on a large, open, unrestricted flat site. An electrical equipment penthouse houses emergency generators.

DFT has achieved LEED Gold certification on this facility through various methods of energy efficient design and construction initiatives. The facility was constructed in two phases - Phase 1 was delivered in September, 2009 and Phase 2 was delivered in October, 2010.
