USP&E Announces Grand Opening of First Dallas Internet Data Center Build Out 11/05/2007

In just under 8 weeks US Power is on target to complete its first Dallas-area internet data center build out just off of Hilcrest for a facility that is located just off the Lyndon Baynes Johnson Freeway later this week. The grand opening has been scheduled for Friday, November 9th, 2007. This turnkey build out included supplying generators, batteries, PDU's, annunciation, flooring, rigging, craning, startup, ongoing maintenance, and fencing, among other services.

USP&E's Division is committed to delivering the same level of creative, proactive, flexible service in the data center design/build process that we have provided our clients since 1968. Unlike the traditional design-specify-bid-build process, which costs more, takes more time to execute and requires more resources to manage, USP&E's Design/Build Data Center Construction Strategy condenses the exercise into a clear and concise process. By fusing design and full-spectrum construction and equipment procurement services, a tighter schedule can be met, costs can be better controlled and unforeseen problems can be eliminated. Our proven methodology is designed to minimize the disruption of your business during deployment, while delivering the highest quality facilities combined with the best absolute best power and environment infrastructure. These are just some of the many services we offer:

Assessment & Planning
Design
Architecture / Engineering
Equipment Sourcing & Scheduling
Construction / Installation / Integration
Commissioning
Operations & Maintenance
Monitoring

Our approach to every engagement starts with defining and understanding the project requirements for the data center and identifying the business objectives. This is followed by an assessment and audit of the available assets and inevitable detriments. We then establish the design criteria and create a preliminary design to summarize the associated project build costs.

From this point, the initial design is developed based on the project scope, determined system requirements, and available data center build budget, both time-wise and dollar-wise. A preliminary project timeline is established to minimizing construction time and ensure alignment with the project budget.

USP&E is your one-stop-shop for critical infrastructure such as generators, UPS's, PDU's, raised flooring, fire suppression and other standard data center equipment. In fact, we purchase most of our equipment as new/surplus or slightly used, but refurbish each piece ourselves. This ensures you receive the best equipment at the lowest possible equipment cost, with the most favorable delivery terms and have it installed by the most skilled craftsman.

USP&E. Building trust since 1968.
