Facts about the Green Data Center

Because the Green Data Center was constructed in accordance with LEED "Green Building" principles, more than 99 percent of all construction waste generated so far has been recycled. That's over 1,200 tons (about 60 truckloads) of waste that did not go to a standard landfill.

More than 25,000 linear feet of electrical conduit, equivalent to about 83 football fields or 4.5 miles, has been used on the project.

Over 120,000 linear feet—more than 22 miles—of wire was used in the construction of the electrical systems.

Almost one mile of piping is used in the heating and cooling systems.
