McKenney’s installed additional cooling systems and capacity at
Internap’s premium colocation facility in Atlanta.
Installation of the new systems in the multistory facility created material
handling and site logistics challenges With a 25-foot height from floor to
slab, installation of 12-inch chilled water piping and large ductwork
required use of scissor lifts—which added difficulty and risk. All roof work
had to take place after hours, resulting in extended shifts and overtime
work. McKenney’s also had to install piping over operational servers and
other equipment in the ceiling of the existing room.
Offsite pipe and sheet metal fabrication minimized on-site installation
hours. Coordinated deliveries decreased disruption of regularly
scheduled building activities. To reduce work conducted over existing
servers and equipment, all welding occurred in the expansion space
and piping was pushed through the data center using roller hangers
from the corridor through the existing server room.

budget and injury free—earning high marks from Internap.
