CH Reynolds Builds Out The New BOX Data Center In Santa Clara
CH Reynolds Electric recently completed its fourth data center build-out for BOX, at the company’s new colocation in CoreSite, Santa Clara. The 3,500-sq.-ft. Data Center build-out included cabling the main distribution area, the horizontal distribution area, and the equipment distribution area.
The solution involved CAT 6A copper, OM4 and Singlemode fiber for backbone and horizontal cabling. CH Reynolds used a Panduit connectivity solution for the network cabling system and Anixter as a distribution partner.
The Data Center’s design included installation of cabinets and ladder racks, in addition to a complete structured cabling system. California has implemented new bracing laws for earthquakes, so CH Reynolds built out seismic bracing for the entire data center, including 45-degree angle support to the ceiling throughout the entire grid system.
With the fast-track nature of this job, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 332 in San Jose played a critical role in supplying technicians for the project who were instrumental in its completion.
