We are one of the nation’s foremost thought leaders in the design of next-generation data center facilities. Our recent experience includes providing unique solutions to the needs of numerous airports, airline operations and related stakeholders including federal government agencies such as the Department of Defense, Army Corps of Engineers and State Department; financial institutions; energy providers; and data center, cloud and colocation facility providers.
Cost-effective engineering solutions that maximize energy efficiency while maintaining reliability continue to be a focus of the data center markets. Page was awarded the Uptime Institute’s prestigious Brill Award for Global Leadership for our innovative United Airlines Data Center project. We designed the back-up Emergency Operations Center that can control the entire United Airlines worldwide operations if the main center is down.
Adapting yesterday’s infrastructure for tomorrow
When United Airlines decided to consolidate multiple pilot training centers around the country into a single facility, they selected Page to transform it into the largest of its type in the world. The 32 full flight simulators located in the consolidated facility train more than 12,000 United pilots as well as others from more than two dozen other airlines and governmental agencies. The fast-track delivery of the design, along with phased packaging, allowed construction to begin on early phases of work while other, later phases were still in design.
The extensive renovation required bringing design cohesion to multiple buildings constructed over six decades to reflect United’s brand identity and align with the state-of-the-art training facility. Page utilized BIM design tools and laser scanning technology of the existing facility to proactively coordinate the renovations with existing conditions since no electronic plans existed.
Skipping lines, saving time
A confidential Fortune 50 energy supermajor needed a new corporate flight operations center, which Page delivered as a design-build. It is approximately 60,000 square feet, and the hangar alone is larger than some passenger airport terminals in order to accommodate various types of aircraft. Passenger terminal and support areas provide full work capabilities, flight planning and crew support areas. A key goal was creating an excellent passenger experience from entering the site to stepping on the aircraft.
