Northern Virginia is one of the largest Internet Exchange Points in the United States and home to a CyrusOne data center campus. Cardno provided structural engineering services for the Sterling II Data Center, CyrusOne’s second facility on the campus.

This high-performing data center is two stories, 348,000 sf and is comprised of data halls, raised floor space, Class A office space and additional support areas. The shell building is a structural precast concrete framed system consisting of double tees, beams, columns and panels.

Companies experiencing rapid and unexpected growth often need a quick solution to meet increased IT capacity requirements. Cardno is equipped to answer their call as demonstrated by our collaboration with CyrusOne and the project team on the Sterling II Data Center, which was constructed in only six months. This accelerated schedule broke all known data center construction records. Cardno’s extensive experience, quality of work and early foundation, steel, bid, and permit packages were key in speeding up approvals and construction schedules for the fast and successful completion of this outstanding data center.
