The HIDI Group acted as the mechanical design consultant and mechanical commissioning agent for this 260,000 ft² computer centre. The facility includes a 60,000 ft² raised floor, 120,000 ft² office and atrium, and 80,000 ft² central utility building. Located in Barrie, Ontario, this was the first data centre in North America to achieve a Tier IV certification from the Uptime Institute. Working closely with the design team and the client, the raised floor was turned over to BMO’s computer team a scant twenty-one months after the initial kick-off design meeting.
