Project Description:

 

This mission critical project involves a new building and satellite uplink facility on a green site adjacent to an existing office and technical building. HBO Latin America Group owns and operates the resulting complex. Although Meridian had already completed several projects in the existing building, its exterior was also renovated to improve its looks, performance and operation. The renovation embraces the architectural design of the new building, creating a harmonic continuity throughout the existing and the new facilities. Both buildings are connected via covered, elevated walkway and bridge. These connecting structures also contain wire ways for the required technical connectivity between the two facilities. HBO’s Data Center will provide a robust, redundant technical backbone installation which safely supports HBO Latin America Group operations. The new building’s design and construction ensure 99.999% reliability, which translates in less than 5 minutes and 15 seconds per year down time. The design requirements call for redundant systems and infrastructure capable of surviving category 5 hurricanes and able to continue under self-powered operation for 30 days without refueling. Building construction is steel frame with precast concrete panel cladding.
