Cupertino Electric data center design and construction project for Yahoo! in Omaha, Nebraska
Omaha (La Vista), NE
300,000 sq. ft. (56,000 sq.ft. of raised floor)
When Cupertino Electric was approached in 2008 to build a world-class data center in La Vista, Nebraska for Yahoo!, we welcomed the opportunity to again partner with General Contractor DPR Construction, Inc. (DPR)/Fortis Construction, Inc. (Fortis) on the project. The data center located near Omaha, Neb. is located on a 24.3-acre parcel of land.
The existing, 300,000 square-foot empty shell building meant that the entire infrastructure had to be constructed from the ground-up. This included utility feeds in the street, generators and transformers in the equipment yard, and an indoor UPS. The somewhat remote Nebraska site houses a critical server load spanning 57,000 square feet of four-foot raised floor.
