OneNeck Data Center
Denver, CO

As a flagship project, the owner wanted more than the typical data center. This state of the art facility was built with innovative functionality and security solutions that impress visitors and clients and serves as a template for future facilities.

Limitless design opportunity put this data center on display.

I was involved in spatial layout and planning early in the process. The goal was to design a facility without site-specific constraints in an ideal situation, so the client could then take that design and replicate it as needed. We designed and discussed several layout options and landed on something that offered a higher level of security and added functionality. Neatly exposed mechanical and electrical components, as well as easy access to the penthouse mechanical system, put the inner-workings of the site on display for impressive tours. The isolated storage, work spaces and loading dock increased security and functionality by reducing the time physically spent in critical spaces. Area around the perimeter of the building doubles as functional storage and added security with a buffer between exterior and data room walls.
