The Adobe Utah Technology Campus is a 280,000 square-foot, $107 million building built on a 38-acre lot. During the design process, Spectrum worked closely with the architect and developer to provide options in the electrical systems that would satisfy the tenant requirements and be cost efficient. Some of these examples include:
Flexible, non-metallic tubing embedded in concrete slabs to run branch circuit wiring, in lieu of hard metal pipe and wiring supported from the structure.
Flexible drop cords to feed power and data to systems furniture, in lieu of expensive poke-through devices or manufactured power poles.
Metal-clad (type “MC”) cabling for branch circuits.
Finding “equal” fixtures to those specified to allow for competitive bidding of lighting fixtures.
Developing an A-B bus for critical power (IT loads) that included one leg of UPS power, and the other leg with generator/utility power, thus eliminating the need and cost for a double UPS system.
The new facility can accommodate 1,100 employees with 40,000 square feet of amenity space. Amenities include: indoor/outdoor café, full-size indoor basketball court, PC gaming room, rock climbing wall, exercise facility, massage room, showers, locker rooms, and bike lockers.
