PARADIGM was selected as the engineer of record for the renovation and remodel of a series of existing Sun Microsystems Buildings located in Santa Clara, which were transformed into a Data Center for Oracle.
The selected buildings required alteration of the roof systems to support the extensive electrical distribution system necessary in these high-density type data centers as well as selective strengthening of various floor elements to support the electrical equipment. PARADIGM worked collectively with the Architect, the electrical engineer and mechanical engineer, to develop structural solutions which strengthened the necessary elements. These buildings were enhanced to provide for reduced damage resulting from a Design Basis Event (DBE).
