RagingWire Data Centres design, builds, and operates mission-critical data centres in California and Virginia that deliver 100% availability and high-density power for leading internet, enterprise, and government organizations. Affiliated with the global network of 150 data centres under the Nexcenter brand operated by NTT Communications, RagingWire opened VA1, its first data centre in Ashburn, Virginia in July 2012, and opened VA2 in early 2016. The new Ashburn facility includes a state-of-the-art and industry-leading power infrastructure and, like all data centres, requires a completely dust-free environment.
The project manager was faced with a couple of major challenges with this project:
- Dust - Because of the mission-critical nature of data centres, the integrity of the operating environment was high priority. The equipment is very sensitive, so dust and outside contaminants had to be eliminated.
- Timeline - With customers already lined up and waiting for the new phase of the facility to come online, timing was very tight. The contractors needed a floor coating solution that could be acquired and installed quickly and would be ready for equipment installation almost immediately.
The solution: LATICRETE® SPARTACOTE™ Guard. The coating was applied quickly and easily once the concrete slab was prepared. Collins Coatings enjoys the challenge of these projects and looks forward to more jobs of this type. RagingWire is pleased with the results and planners are already discussing the next phase of build-out for the future.
"Every project we do is important, but the pressure was really on for this one,” said Buck Collins of Collins Concrete Coatings. "An application like this has no room for error, and we were completely confident in our ability to get it done on time with the results the client desired. Concrete floor dust will not be an issue for RagingWire or its customers.” Read the full Project Spotlight here.
