Kaiser Permanante Data Center

Napa, California
Certification: LEED® Level: EB O&M v3.0 PLATINUM

How we solved the challenge

These days, data drives everything. So when Kaiser Permanente purchased a 15-year-old building to renovate as the new home for their Data Center, they also hired BuildingWise to work with architects Hawley Petersen Snyder (HPS) and take it through the LEED for Existing Buildings high performance operations and maintenance certification program.

In early 2012, the building became the first stand-alone data center in the world to achieve the highest level of LEED-EB certification.
