The data center fire alarm and suppression system was upgraded with a FM-200 agent and a new analog addressable detection and notification system for the room, raised-floor, and the hot-aisle containment areas. The room ceiling was replaced and new LED lighting was installed. Wissehr was also responsible for other upgrades such a wall partition modifications, painting, chilled water mechanical piping, upgrade of existing chillers, plumbing, HVAC, and other work.
