CyrusOne Data Center
Developer: CyrusOne Network Company
Contractor: J.E. Dunn Construction
Architect: PHArchitecture/Corgan Associates
Size: 200,293 SF
Location: 2335 S. Ellis St., Chandler
Completed: February 2013

CyrusOne Chandler is one of the first data center developments to target LEED Silver certification or higher. The exterior materials and building colors were chosen for their highly reflective surfaces and resistance to heat transfer. Louvered canopies were built to provide shade and reduce solar exposure. The landscaping consists of a combination of desert pallet plants and trees that are watered with an onsite reclaimed retention pond. This energy efficient building caused complications during construction because of a quick timeline and specific building materials. The design and construction teams were spread across the United States and had to rely on technology meeting tools and streamlined communication.
