Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Flight Simulator and Data Center
The 110,000 sf building is the first of five planned for the site. Building I contains two separate functions, a flight simulator and a data center, while the follow on buildings are mainly office and administrative. The data center is extremely load intensive, with an electrical and cooling design criteria of 1,500 w/sf of I.T. load, although initial central plant capacities are based on half of this. The three story building incorporates the data center below grade, the flight simulator at grade and office space on the second floor.
