SaskTel has Data Centres in multiple locations in Regina and Saskatoon with Tier 3 capabilities providing redundant power, cooling and power generation. The facilities are site hardened with no windows or doors with direct access to the data center facility.
The fully occupied and functional office building centrally located downtown, is a 1400 square meter renovation that required the floor above the existing data center to be upgraded and converted into a functional yet visually appealing data center. Also included in this project were the renovations of washrooms, lobbies, security areas and existing and new offices. In order to reduce the size of our construction footprint from day to day operations, CCR worked many nights and weekends. We closed off back alleys to trench in a concrete vault from an existing SaskTel building to our project building and closed off part of the street to crane structural members 70 feet up to the roof of the building. Further to these closure, CCR constructed many dust and sound partitions to further reduce the impact of construction on the occupants of the building.
