General Services Administration Department of Transportation Headquarters
The Department of Transportation Headquarters is comprised of 1.5 million square feet of office space over two buildings designed to accommodate 5,500 employees. The facility, built to meet the needs of the agency well into the 21st century, has both a primary and redundant data center totaling over 40,000 square feet in raised floor area.
Integral Group assisted the General Services Administration (GSA) in the procurement of a single vendor to install the BAS system for both the base building and tenant systems. Interviews were conducted with DOT personnel to determine requirements for BAS system interface and RFQ/RFP documents were developed. Integral Group also provided 3 one-megawatt standby generators to power the data centers and other mission critical systems through 2 one-megawatt UPS modules. The standby generators provide power to two central chillers and associated cooling towers and pumps. A pre-action sprinkler system within the data center was incorporated into our design. As the commissioning agent, Integral Group was responsible for full MEP system verification and provided design assistance for modifications to the mission critical systems precipitated by the changes in DOT’s program.
