Data Center

Kahn's multi-phased renovation and expansion of Delta Dental's corporate campus began with the development of a secure structure to protect the client's existing data center operations.

Constructed of reinforced concrete walls and roof, the partially recessed semi-bunker-style data center houses the client’s most crucial computerized information. This Tier III facility functions as an effective disaster recovery unit via an N plus one redundancy configuration, and is also designed to withstand all manner of weather, including an F2 tornado.

Nestled into the back of the site, this remote, yet visible, structure employs the same palette of materials as the other campus buildings, including matching brick, with flourishes of limestone. It has security protection via no windows or glass, employing just one entrance, and containing double-reinforced alternate corridors where air can be directed out of harm’s way in the unlikely event of a fire or other emergency.
