Novva Data Center is Utah’s most eco-friendly, most recent, and largest hyper-scale data center solution that provides wholesale and multi-tenant colocation infrastructure services to local, national, and international clients. This facility was constructed as essential, using special reinforced tilt-up concrete wall construction and slender-wall analysis. Insulated tilt-up sandwich panels were used around the data center.
Concrete was left exposed both inside and outside of the building. The exposed concrete has a pattern of closely spaced wide reveals. The wall piers between the storefront glass needed to be thickened due to the high seismic forces. The tilt-up wall piers also needed to be exposed on all sides with matching reveals. This was accomplished by sandwiching two “C” shaped panels together, creating a void that could then be filled with additional concrete. In other words, the architecturally finished tilt-up wall panels became concrete forms.
