Digital Convergence Master Plan

Digital Realty
Louisville, Texas, USA

This 164-acre suburban site is the locations of Digital Realty's newest "datacampus"; a science park with the telecommunications infrastructure and electrical capacity necessary for housing multiple data centers on site. 

The master plan incorporates the site's existing buildings (and tenants) while creating a plan to attract and retain new growth. The plan includes considerations for vehicular circulation and access, security planning, and—most importantly for a data campus—electrical planning for conduits and telecommunications.  To guide growth within the campus, the plan includes a strategic timeline and construction schedule for future building. In addition, updates and improvements to the site's Central Utility Plant were performed for the site's existing tenants.

As part of the master plan, HDR was also responsible for the architectural direction of all future construction on the entire property, ensuring as new construction is necessary, the campus will retain cohesion and a sense of place
