The 147,000-sq-ft custom data center in eastern Oregon is needed to provide storage space for the massive amounts of photos, video and data generated by Facebook users worldwide.

The facility maximizes energy efficiency through an evaporative cooling system that will be operated up to 70% of the year when humidity is low. A portion of the heat generated by the project’s thousands of servers will be captured and re-used to heat office spaces. Pursuing LEED gold certification, the project’s other features include the use of rainwater for landscaping, low-VOC finishes and low-flow fixtures.
