CEE 7381 - Site Selection for Industrial and Mission-Critical Facilities


Credits: 3

Efficient industrial centers and facilities with mission-critical subsystems such as datacenters require balanced considerations with respect to facility design and site location. Site location plays an integral role in creating successful projects that especially support high reliability and promote sustainable design. While the important factors may vary from site to site, in any given instance a single factor can undermine the success of an otherwise excellent project. Ready availability and proper site selection that minimizes risk of disruption are particularly important factors for successful operation. Covers siting considerations, including power needs, electrical mix, weather patterns, building codes, proximity to the workforce and transportation, and other topics that bear on reliable operation. Emphasizes strategies of site selection to adequately safeguard hardware and mission-critical data. Prerequisite: Graduate standing or permission of instructor.
