Project Narrative

This 136,000 ft2 data center was erected in just 9 days. SV-6 is the third CoreSite data center with a ConXL structural frame on CoreSite’s Silicon Valley campus.

ConX Solutions

The ConXL System addressed CoreSite’s need for a robust, long-span steel data center frame delivered cost-effectively and with increased speed to market. ConXL’s inherent lack of shear walls and bracing allow for a fully open and reconfigurable floor plan which provides ultimate flexibility for mechanical system routing and future upgrades. The ConXL System also delivered a solution for the highly concentrated floor loadings (275 psf) required with unparalleled structural efficiency.
