New technologies are transforming the traditional workspace allowing building owners, operators, and developers to attract and retain tenants in a competitive market. (Learn more about the smart building technology.)
The occupant density and equipment heat gain of today’s high tech trading floor is much higher than that of a typical office space.
Utilizing underfloor air distribution (UFAD) containment by way of workstations and redundant cooling units creates an environment where people and computers can be simultaneously satisfied. To successfully implement these strategies, the work must be done ahead of time with accurate power consumption readings and in-depth coordination with workstation vendors.
ESD’s Saahil Tumber and Maureen Kozel take us through the challenges and requirements of cooling today’s high tech trading environments, and explain why UFAD is often the solution in this their article, “Cool Air Commodity UFAD Systems in High-Density Trading Floors” in Engineered Systems.
