Credit Suisse’s four-story Center of Excellence houses offices, training rooms, conference areas, and food-service facilities. The main work areas of the facility are located on the second, third, and fourth floors, affording beautiful views of the wooded campus. The majority of interior partition walls are located in the core of the building and in small groups of offices leaving the remaining space open and exposed to daylight. A Disaster Recovery Data Center upfit on the ground floor was also provided. All electrical and mechanical systems were designed with N+2 redundancies, including UPS rooms, a Paralleling Switchgear Room, and Battery Room. A Veris Acquisuite system was installed to monitor IT equipment power usage. All power and BMS monitoring is done in both the Data Center Control Room and in Credit Suisse’s corporate office in New York City.
