US-based Stream Data Centers has been awarded LEED Gold Certification for its Private Data Center (PDC) facility in Richardson, Texas.

The purpose-built data center was completed in 2012 and was Stream's second development in the Dallas area in the last two years.

The Richardson community is home to what's known, nationally, as the Telecom Corridor, an area that boasts one of the highest concentrations of technology employees in the country.

Richardson's proven power and fiber infrastructure has attracted major data center operations and critical facilities for companies including Texas Instruments, Bank of America, AT&T, Verizon, Cisco Systems and Fujitsu.

The LEED Rating System, designed by the US Green Building Council, provides standards for environmentally-sustainable design and construction and for high-performance green buildings.

Stream Data Centers' new Dallas-area facility features recycled and regionally sourced construction materials and on-site operating systems designed to conserve natural resources and optimize water efficiency, air quality and energy performance.

It's the third LEED certified data center facility the company has developed in the last three years. 

The new facility is a ground-up, purpose-built data center development totaling 73,320 sq ft, built to Miami-Dade County Building Code Standards and can withstand 185-mph winds and uplift.

It provides 30,000 sq ft of raised floor with all necessary conduit and pads in place, and it offers scalable operations, delivering 3.375MW of critical load that is expandable to 6.75MW.

Stream said it also ensures redundancy for users via dual-feed power from two separate substations and a 2N electrical / N+1 mechanical configuration. The carrier-neutral facility is served by eight fiber providers through diverse, private fiber conduits.

Stream Data Centers is also developing a Private Data Center project in the Houston market and has secured land in San Antonio to begin developing its ninth data center in the last five years. The company is also active in the Denver and Minneapolis markets.
