Syracuse University's Green Data Center (SUGDC)
Erie Mechanical installed the mechanical system for Syracuse University’s Green Data Center (SUGDC), a 12,000-sq.ft. facility, created by the university and IBM, opened December 2009 and is registered to receive U.S. Green Building Council LEED Silver certification.

The concept of building a data center with its own power source, and the ability to provide additional power for the campus grid, using natural gas fired turbines having a by-product of hot water heat created by the heat from discharge flue gases, makes this a completely self-sufficient energy facility. The schedule was tight and required many hours of overtime to complete the project within the schedule.
