Scotia Bank selected SJP as landlord and contractor to complete the construction of their Northeast Regional Disaster Recovery site in Iselin, New Jersey.  The project featured a fully redundant installation including over 30 watts/sf of Utility Power, Generator Power and UPS Power. To facilitate the power consumption, SJP provided building-wide switching and electric load isolating equipment to ensure available power to all base-building systems and the required watts/sf for Bank of Nova Scotia’s requirements.

Within the bank’s disaster recovery space, SJP built two completely redundant electrical distribution systems, UPS systems and network systems to each desk with A & B side electrical distribution. The A&B side electrical network is fully redundant to separate building switch gears and generators with an added tie-switch for switchover in the unlikely event of failure. The space has supplemental cooling from four separate computer room AC units served by rooftop drycoolers and act in redundant pairs which cycle for load balancing.

The building features a total of three Megawatts of generator back-up power for all base-building systems and tenant electrical loads. To accommodate Bank of Nova Scotia’s run-time requirements, SJP also upgraded the building generators to provide 72 hours of run time with on-site fuel. Base building and supplemental systems were modified to include continuous monitoring from the bank’s central facilities department.
