Project Centurion is a 150,000 SF two-level data center located in Ashburn, Virginia. The building consists of an exterior tilt-up wall panel system with a structural steel interior. The tilt-up panels average 65’-0” in height and were cast with an intricate formliner and reveal pattern along the majority of the building. A great deal of coordination was required to ensure that the final product provided the aesthetic quality that the design team required.
Footings began in January 2019 and panel erection occurred in April of 2019. Slab on metal deck was poured out in early July and the project was turned over for interior fit out in September of 2019.
The project was built on a very tight site that required a great deal of coordination for panel layout and material staging. The site also had many exisiting utilities including a major ductbank that remained in place and had to be coordinated around. All in all the site location was not ideal for a tilt-up project yet we managed to find a way to build a data center with a detailed aesthetic facade amongst an existing campus and facilities.
