Ada County 911 Dispatch Center
The Ada County 911 Dispatch Center is a new, 25,000 sq. ft. building on three acres located in Meridian, ID. Our team was challenged with designing electrical and mechanical systems that would replace existing high-energy consumption systems. The design solution needed to be energy-conscious and below ASHRAE 90.1, while still meeting the needs of the emergency dispatch staff.
Cushing Terrell designed an in-row cooling system for the data center using a modulating chiller unit along with a modulating in-row fan system. The team also used variable refrigerant flow (VRF) for the administration portion of the building. The electrical system used for dispatch and data center is redundant with a hot-swappable component so the system will not have to shut down for servicing or replacement of parts.
