Level (3) Communications Corporate Headquarters and Data Center

Broomfield, Colorado

Morrissey Engineering was retained to provide complete mechanical and electrical engineering design services for Level (3) Communications Corporate Headquarters Campus in Broomfield, Colorado. Level (3) is a fiber optics networking communications company. The campus contains over 850,000 square feet in five buildings on a 46-acre site.

Critical systems space design included a 25,000 square foot, 24x7x365 fully redundant data center with 99.9999% reliability. Also part of the design was a network operations center (NOC) for monitoring their worldwide fiber network. The NOC has adjacent "war rooms" for troubleshooting operations. This design also included critical power generation of up to 6 MW.

Some other features of the electrical system include 4000 amp, 480/277-volt electrical services with 400 KW backup generator for elevators, fire pump, and life safety lighting loads.
