Air Conditioning Upgrade for Data Center

The Air Conditioning Upgrade project involved Ann Arbor engineering for the planning, design, installation and startup of two new Computer Room Air Conditioning (CRAC) units to the existing Data Center at the University of Michigan. These additional CRAC units were required to ensure that the data center space temperature could be maintained at the desired set point. This project also involved connecting these new AC units to the emergency power source.
