Bold design distinguishes a flagship data center.
Cutting-edge infrastructure with a strong brand presence.
Located in the heart of Data Center Alley, VA3 is an award-winning flagship building that anchors NTT's (formally RagingWire) Ashburn campus. It marks the first phase of a seven building development on the 78-acre campus.
NTT engaged HED to provide full service architecture and MEP services to design a bold yet competitive facility for their retail and wholesale customers. The new building measures 248,000 gross square feet, including 112,000 square feet of raised floor divided into six data halls.
Designed for 99.999% uptime, the data center features 33MW of backup generator power, waterless cooling using pumped refrigerant economizers and condensers and 16MW of critical IT load.
The front of the two-story structure houses 52,000 square feet of support and amenity spaces including customer lounges, meeting rooms, employee and customer kitchens, customer and NTT corporate offices, workout facilities, dedicated parking and a shipping and receiving dock with long-term storage options.
