T5 Data Centers' T5@LA Data Center Facility Receives LEED(R)

USGCB Awards T5's Los Angeles Data Center Green Building Certification.

Los Angeles, CA, USA (October 22, 2013) -- T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments for any enterprise, today announced that the company's T5@LA facility has been granted LEED® Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). This is the third T5 data center to be granted LEED certification and serves as another example of the company's commitment to maintaining environmentally responsible data centers.

T5@LA was fully commissioned in August 2012 and is a tier III-plus MEP design (mechanical, engineering, plumbing) purpose-built data center located in El Segundo near Los Angeles International Airport. The building boasts 181,489 square feet under one roof and uses Munters evaporative cooling systems mounted on the roof for a lower PUE (power usage effectiveness). The data center also has its own dedicated onsite power station and is capable of delivering 15.9 MW of critical IT load.

To qualify for LEED Silver certification, T5@LA was built using sustainable materials and is equipped with the latest energy-saving heating, cooling, and lighting systems. The data center has a 40% greater energy efficiency than competing data centers in the region and has an optimal PUE. The building also is located adjacent to the Los Angeles Metro Rail and can be easily reached via mass transit. T5@LA has already started attracting tenants, including a major transportation service operator.

"The lower our carbon footprint, the better it is for our tenants as well as the environment," said Robbie Sovie, LEED AP, Vice President, Development for T5 Data Centers. "T5 is committed to maintaining green data centers to save our customers operating expenses at the same time we are conserving natural resources. Our goal is to ultimately receive LEED certification for all of our data center facilities as proof of our environmental commitment as green corporate citizens."

T5's Data Center's T5@Atlanta and T5@Dallas facilities are also LEED Silver certified, and T5 anticipates its T5@Kings Mountain, T5@Portland, and T5@Colorado Springs projects will be LEED certified in the near future.

LEED is the foremost program for the design, construction, and operation of green buildings. More than 44,000 projects are currently participating in the commercial and institutional LEED rating systems, which represents more than 8 billion square feet of construction space spanning the 50 United States and 120 countries.
