FACEBOOK DATA CENTER
North Fort Worth, Texas
Facebook & Hillwood Development Company
500,000 square foot Data Center (Phase 1); 150 acre campus
Peloton is the engineering firm of record for the multi-phased Facebook Data Center, with a first phase value of $1.2 billion, currently under construction in Hillwood’s AllianceTexas development. Located on a 150-acre site on the northeast corner of Park Vista Boulevard and SH 170, the initial phase includes approximately 500,000 square feet of building space shared by two data halls and an administration building. The site features three large detention ponds (with one being an underground system); 500,000 cubic yards of earthwork; and more than 20 miles of underground utilities. A second phase, currently under construction and valued at $267 million, includes the addition of a third data hall with an approximate footprint of 320,000 square feet. Additional phases are under design.
Like its predecessors, the Fort Worth Data Center will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy. Peloton served as the local design team representative and was instrumental in securing the necessary permits through the city of Fort Worth in a timely manner. Peloton’s scope also includes 3D modeling of underground utilities including clash detection using Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. Peloton provided surveying, entitlement, civil design, and construction administration services for the project.
