THE POWER WITHIN: Data center construction and their energy needs to support cloud computing and AI are making headlines across the country.


Corgan is the architect. In the past five years, the Dallas-based firm has designed more than 70 data center projects in the Silicon Valley and San Francisco region, including 40 data center projects of scale, encompassing more than 6,000,000 square feet.

Local communities want a building that they can be proud of, and Corgan responded to that.

“A lot of attention was spent on the design of the façade and how it would affect the neighborhood around it,” said Tom Kruger, vice president and project manager at Corgan, which designed both SV7 and SV9 for CoreSite. “Silicon Valley is an urban environment and the data centers in Silicon Valley need to be more integrated with the neighborhood.”

When it comes to design and operation, there are a lot of unique aspects to Silicon Valley including water use, zoning and complying with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), which adds an additional layer of research about how a project affects the environment both in construction and final use.
