Mission Critical

Peak 10 Data Center
Franklin, Tennessee

Designed to resemble an office building, the new Peak 10 data center was one of the first mission critical projects to meet the City of Franklin’s strict aesthetic guidelines. US HealthRealty (CHR) partnered with Skanska to provide the customized service of a local developer backed by the wealth of knowledge and resources of an experienced mission critical contractor.

CHR and Skanska combined efforts to accommodate Peak 10’s future growth and avoid stranded capacity and capital with a flexible and scalable space. The initial scope of the project included the build-out of 5,000-SF of office space and 12,000-SF of raised floor data center space with a day one generating capacity of 5 MW. Additional capacity remained for 5,000-SF of office space and 40,000-SF of data center space to be built in future phases as the client base grows. The underground infrastructure was installed for the entire building during the first phase, but only a quarter of the interior space was built-out. The electrical rooms, pump room and equipment yard support the current data center space and all are easily expandable as the client’s user base increases. The Tier III data center incorporated multiple CRAC units to ensure consistent temperature and humidity levels at all times. The colocation facility also included biometric fingerprint readers, card/PIN access and 24/7/365 video surveillance.

The structure of the development terms included all of the debt and equity necessary to finance the project as well as a completion guaranty. Peak 10 was provided with a 15-year lease term with an option to renew for an additional 10 years. CHR identified and secured a site location within a quarter-mile of the electrical service provider’s substation and increased the speed-to-market time by overlapping the initial building upfit with the construction of the core and shell, which resulted in a total construction duration of just nine months.
