Automated Logic Provides Control for World’s Tallest Data Center
The 32-Story, 1.2 Million-Square-Foot Tower Is Located in Lower Manhattan
Previously known as the Verizon Building, this 32-story, 1.2 million-square-foot tower located in lower Manhattan is owned by Sabey Data Center Properties, a Seattle-based multi-tenant data center infrastructure specialist and co-location provider. ALC is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
“We understand the mission-critical challenges data center building owners face in providing optimal environments for their facilities,” said Mead Rusert, president, Automated Logic. “The innovative control and monitoring features within WebCTRL give facility managers the power and flexibility they need to create ideal environments that operate as efficiently as possible. WebCTRL’s track record of reliability provides reassurance for the vital uptime demand in this market.”
ALC’s WebCTRL web-based building automation system provides essential HVAC control for the facility, which is capable of accommodating up to 40 megawatts of power and housing 600,000 square feet of data center space. The WebCTRL system is also providing multiple levels of redundant control, backed by extensive trend reporting capabilities.
Sabey’s operation team will fully utilize these capabilities to develop advanced sequences for chiller plant optimization and maximum efficiency. Tenants will benefit from innovative system features that allow ideal operational conditions, security monitoring, and full access reporting and monitoring of critical operations.
“We have operated our data centers for many years with ALC building automation systems,” said John Sasser, vice president operations, Sabey Data Center Properties. “We find WebCTRL reliable, flexible, and intuitive.”
The facility, which is the city’s only purpose-built data center, opened in March 2013 and has turnkey powered shell and lab space available.
