Project Description

The Pennsylvania State University (PSU) is excited to begin the Architecture/Engineering (A/E) Team selection process for the Computer Building Renovation Project. The initial effort will include the programming phase and, if approved, will move forward into design. PSU is utilizing our standard qualification‐based A/E Team selection process for this study.

The Computer Building, located at the intersection of Curtin and Bigler Roads on Penn State’s University Park campus, was originally constructed in 1964 as a 2‐story, mixed use building with offices, classrooms, computer rooms, and support spaces. A large addition was constructed in 1973, doubling the size of the building. The raised floor and acoustic ceiling in the data halls has not been replaced since the 1973 project. A 2nd addition was completed in 2008, which included redundant electrical infrastructure to support IT capacity growth, including generators, switchgear, UPS, and electrical controls systems. The majority of the office space was renovated during this project. Currently, the Computer Building is a 65,000 SF facility with approximately 14,550 SF of raised floor.
