The focus of the study is the Structural design of "Data Centre Building". Data Centre buildings are the one which houses the complete systems such as computer systems, telecommunication systems and storage systems along with its components. It also contains the redundant power supplies, redundant data communication systems in a controlled environment which provides air conditioning, electrical equipments, fire protection and functional use at desired levels.
Architecture layout and space planning of Data centre depends upon various factors such as location of the site, local bye laws, electrical systems, mechanical systems, number of racks, Tier level, modularity and future expansion . Tier levels are defined by Uptime and TIA 942 guidelines .
Structural design of Data centre Building should be such that it has lager columns bays such as 25ft x25ft, Minimum height clearance of 4 m from structural slab to lowest structural member, loading considerations depending upon tier level and raised floors, Seismic design requirement, Building lateral force resisting system .
In this study, 3D analytical model of the Data Centre Building of G+3 storied have been modeled and analyzed using the structural design and analysis tool "Etabs 2015". To study the structural characteristics of the Data centre building analytical model includes all important structural elements that includes strength, stiffness, mass and structural deformability. From the studies it has been ascertained that the storey drifts are found within the limit as specified by code (IS: 1893-2002, Part-1).
