AZ11 Vantage Data Center

Summarize the project's program, features and achievements?

This was a very unique tilt-up project for the Suntec team, non-typical of other tilt-up projects that have been completed. The exposed concrete panels were erected and connected to the building structure, but merely as a façade, with an elaborate reveal design utilized to achieve a unique aesthetic for the market. While just used as a façade, the 69 panels were standard 8-inch thickness and ranging in size from as little as 4 feet, 11 7/8 inches wide and 16 feet, 6 inches tall up to the largest panels which were 28 feet, 3 inches wide and 42 feet, 4 inches tall.

The main facade of the building features a dynamic composition of metal panel, curtain walls, and patterned concrete varying in height and length. The curtain wall system uses vision glass, spandrel glass, and metal panels to provide natural lighting, street views for on-site staff, as well as visual interest. Vertical fins, strategically placed for sun shading, are also part of the facade system to create visual movement of the building. Striated rock formation, a classic Arizona image, inspires the linear formed concrete texture. These patterns follow the playfulness of the vertical fins to emphasize the gradient of visual movement.

Master planned on Vantage's AZ1 campus, AZ11 is a two-story data center with four data modules, supporting infrastructure, and office space. With a substation built on the southwest corner of the lot, additional power is provided by Arizona Public Service, through a new master planned on-site substation, which is necessary for the functions of the data center building.

Monumental walls with Vantage signage are placed at the entrances of the data center building. These feature walls coherently work with other on-site signage pieces to create a visitor-friendly campus. AZ11 is the first 16 MW phase of a 64 MW building with AZ12 being constructed to the north and AZ13 to the west of AZ11.
