Technology Connection was engaged by CBRE and a High Tech Fortune 50 Company to provide an
energy savings solution to the data center space utilizing Virtual Containment. This project was started
on Monday April 25th, 2016 and finished on Friday April 29th, 2016. The objective was to install turbulent
airflow tiles with subfloor air balancers to break down thermal layers in the cold aisle which creates a
Containment Affect and provides cooler rack intake temperatures along with dialing up set points at the
chilled water plant by a total of 4 degrees (F) to achieve energy savings. The entire process was
documented and data points were taken by both Technology Connection and CBRE to verify the success
of the project and the energy efficiencies achieved.
