Walls Go Up at Texas 1 Data Center

The sunny Texas weather is faring well at Texas 1! This week, crews made quite a bit of progress as they raised the walls at Texas 1. 8 of the 900 or so precast reinforced concrete wall panels are now up at the Texas 1 facility.  The concrete columns will support the roof, and the walls will act as the skin holding the facility together. In essence, the work done this week acts as the “skeletal system” of the Texas 1 building. It’s starting to get easier and easier to visualize exactly how massive this premium data center will be…
