Title: Seismic Upgrade vs. Data Center

Insurance, Insurance, Insurance!


Sprengnether (sp.) used to make a nice small vibration monitoring device that will tell you what structure motions might be experienced in the data center room while work is ongoing (we used them to monitor vibrations in apartment buildings in NYC while doing drill-blast-& shoot tunneling below).  Dust control by positive air pressure in data center room.  That's all I can think of for now.  Best of Luck.

Subject: Seismic Upgrade vs. Data Center


Does anyone have any first hand experience with doing a seismic upgrade in a data center room while the servers and air conditioning system are running.  Upgrade work would be installing concrete shear walls and micropiles.

Any lessons learned?

Thanks in advance for any input,
