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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
To start, a Design Everest associate schedules a consultation with you to fully understand your needs.

Our proprietary data system, the ‘Design Hub’ allows us to efficiently forecast and optimize our resources. This means our architectural designers and structural engineers in California can take on a project of any size at any time while maintaining quality and schedule.
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.
Design Everest made us a set of high quality architectural plans for a proposed home remodel with addition. They were responsive, professional, and prompt. Gotta have your drawings to get your quotes, and Design Everest delivered

Design Everest is OPEN! We work remotely and are fully committed to taking on and delivering projects.
Design Everest’s remote working model can safely take-up and deliver your projects within the current government guidelines on COVID-19 (a.k.a Coronavirus). This applies to many of our project scopes, including architecture, civil engineering, structural engineering, and construction administration across California.
Design Everest is set up to remotely leverage digital platforms (virtual meetings, calls, emails etc.) in client-facing and internal operations. Over the years, we have advanced this ability to the extent that we can continue supporting new and existing clients across many of our projects. Even projects that need an on-site visit can be fulfilled safely via video calls or in-person visits, where permitted.
Note that the present government guidelines permit the delivery of essential services, including those related to construction.
YES, Design Everest's remote working model enables us to work safely with all clients, suppliers, industry partners, and internal staff as per government guidelines.
Design Everest can still support many of our types of projects (new or ongoing) safely. For example, new custom homes, accessory dwelling units, civil plans etc. We are committed to delivering these remotely and safely as per the current government guidelines. In case of any external dependency that is unavoidable/unavailable, your assigned Custom Success Manager or Project Manager will keep you posted on it and try their best to keep your plans in-progress.

Some of our clients are already going ahead with their projects with us via video calls or virtual meetings. Your assigned Customer Success Manager or Project Manager is happy to help you with this, where needed.
There are multiple reasons for this. It's typical to plan the construction step in the summer. So, clients get started on the pre-construction steps (architecture, engineering, and construction admin) in winter or spring to stick to planned timelines.
Projects such as Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and Additions/Remodels enable clients to rent/resale and generate revenue. Meanwhile, many clients are concerned about protecting their families and businesses against earthquakes by retrofitting their homes and buildings. These are just a few of the various reasons why it’s still reasonable for clients to stick to their construction plans.
Feel free to phone us at (888) 311-3015 Alternatively, you may contact your assigned Custom Success Manager or Project Manager directly via phone, email or virtual meetings.
