Compass Red Oak I Wins ENR Manufacturing Award of Merit
HED is very pleased to share that the Compass Red Oak I Data Center has been awarded the ENR Texas & Louisiana Best Projects 2020 - Manufacturing Award of Merit!

In delivering the first data center on a new 165-acre campus in Red Oak, Texas, the project team battled 43 rain days—more than twice the amount anticipated based on a 10-year average for the area. Despite the above average rainfall, the team completed precast erection ahead of schedule. To stay on an accelerated schedule, precast erection work continued throughout the installation of underground utilities and placing concrete. The team moved roughly 20% of worker hours off site, including for the prefabrication of medium voltage duct banks.
In addition to a 40,000-sq-ft 6MW IT capacity data center, the project features a 58,000-sq-ft equipment yard. Once complete, the Red Oak 252MW campus will sit on 165 acres and feature an on-site sub-station and is serviced by multiple fiber paths.
