ICIT Data Center HVAC Upgrade
The server room of the ICIT Data Center is the central nervous system of the College's technology infrastructure. The room that houses the servers must be kept cool and well ventilated at all times. An aging HVAC system which supplies the server room with cooled air was found to be inadequate in meeting the needs of the Data Center and has been replaced. This project was done in multiple stages, involving removal of the equipment shown below and subsequent installation of a robust, new HVAC system with increased capacity, reliability and efficiency.
