The entire facility is powered by self-contained uninterruptible power systems and standby generators if utility power is lost. Other design features allow the facility to operate self-sufficiently for days or weeks at a time, if required. The building utilizes an HVAC system with under-floor air distribution to maximize equipment cooling and occupant comfort.
