Equinix Chicago III

Elk Grove, Il

Paradigm’s work for Equinix has included structural engineering for major new corporate facilities and expansions to existing facilities with complex design and construction requirements, including performance-based engineering and enhanced seismic designs with specific emphasis on reduction of business interruption.

Paradigm was the structural engineer of record for this 350,000 gsf three-story precast concrete data center, and also provided the structural design of the foundation system to support a 1M gallon water tank to be used as water storage. This project incorporated a unique seismic design for a building that was, until recently, believed to be a non-seismically active region.
