Project Details

Jackson & Blanc was selected as prime contractor to provide additional cooling needs to support the operational data center of DreamWorks Animation in Glendale, CA. 

The project consisted of installation of 600 tons new cooling capacity in the central plant, new chilled water pipe-line extension from the central plant to the data center, and an additional 120 tons of computer room air conditioning units within the data center itself.
 
Specialized care and protection measures were required to protect the existing data center serves and equipment during the new installation. J&B work closely with construction manager, Sempra Energy Solutions, and DreamWorks personnel to complete the entire project with zero downtime in the data center.
