Design Everest Services For Data Center Design & Server Rack Anchorage
MEP & HVAC System Design
The Mechanical & HVAC systems, Electrical systems, and Plumbing systems design is one of the most crucial elements for Data Centers. This is why our focus is primarily on safety, system efficiency, potential cost reduction, ease of system operations & maintenance, and the functional needs of the Data Center.
Our engineers have experience delivering efficient system design for ensuring proper air distribution, power distribution, and water/fuel supply and distribution systems
Engineering Plans & Permit Sets
We have vast experience delivering quality Structural Engineering plans and will assist you with obtaining structural engineering permit approval for all your construction needs. If you need to start with the preparation of the land, you may require our Civil Engineering services as well.
We also provide services like on-site structural inspection, seismic retrofit, and load bearing wall removal for spatial improvements as required for the Data Center.
Our Civil Engineering services include subdivision plans, grading plans & earthwork estimates, drainage and sewer plans, erosion control, retaining walls, hydrology studies and Stormwater Design (with LID)
Seismic Anchorage of Server Racks
California is an earthquake prone zone and it is imperative to protect the expensive and delicate equipment like servers from the disastrous effect of the next earthquake. Seismic Anchorage of server racks provide an added stability to the servers and safeguard it against damage and possible downtime in seismic events that lead to vibration of the ground.
HVAC & Other Equipment Installation Support
When facing an expense of several thousand dollars for a new furnace, air conditioner, HVAC system, or plumbing equipment, one must take all steps necessary to ensure that the equipment is installed safely and meets the building code requirements so that your equipment is reliable for many years. If you are installing the equipment on the roof, on the floor, or hanging it from the ceiling, you will need structural calculations and building permits before you can proceed with the installation.
Energy Efficiency - Solar Installation Support
Leveraging solar energy for powering data centers is a great way to not only reduce the carbon footprint, but also to reduce the recurring energy bills. Whether you are looking to have solar panels installed on the roof of the data center, or are planning to build a local solar farm, Design Everest can help by providing the necessary engineering calculations and plans for the solar installation support.
Seismic Retrofit of an Existing Data Center
Earthquake retrofitting, or seismic retrofitting, involves addition of structural enhancements to your existing data center building so that it is less likely to be damaged during an earthquake. The enhancements might be as simple as straps to secure equipment or as complex as structural anchors, roofing modifications or retrofit of the building foundation.
You can start with the construction only after all the necessary building permits have been approved by the City. Once this is done, we can refer you to our trusted contractor partners.
Construction Administration/ Structural Observation
Our engineers can help you with Construction Administration Services during construction to ensure your data center building is being built as per plan. This is a great way to ensure no re-work is required later and helps in the timely completion of the project.
We have a dedicated webpage for our clients to reach out to us easily, and a dedicated construction support team to assist you during the construction process.
For commercial property owners, the entire process of obtaining quality engineering plans in a quick turnaround time and getting the plans permitted can get overwhelming! Our dedicated Project Managers guide you at every step along the way to ensure that you remain stress free while we deliver!
We hired Design Everest for an addition project. Project was challenging since they took over the project midway from a previous firm with whom we had a very unpleasant experience.
Project involves adding a kitchen, family room with a deck over the addition which involves specific features since it is a deck over a living space.
DE architects and engineers worked with the city to cover all aspects of the design in detail. The owner, Aakash, and project manager, Mayank, gave timely responses to our questions and we are overall happy with their service.

Design Everest created architectural and structural plans for the ADU I'm building in Walnut Creek. Regardless of the slow and long approval process, dictated by the county building department, Jessica stayed on top of her game every time, delivering the changes as requested and providing all the necessary detail. I am very happy with the service and would recommend the firm to anyone starting from scratch, whether you are an owner-builder or a professional contractor.
