This two-building complex consists of an office building to house all agency service staff and a data center comprised of critical digital systems. The buildings are sisters, related but very different, each protecting the other. The light and airy 74,000 square foot office building is home to the agency’s administrative headquarters with offices for service staff and a full training suite for other state agencies. The data center is a hardened facility that provides in-state backup capacity, 24-7 emergency operations and redundancy for critical data, telecommunications, and network systems. Utilizing FEMA and GSA guidelines for critical facilities, the building and site are designed to resist F4 level tornados, hurricanes with 200 mph winds, and terrorist attacks to ensure no interruption to vital state data processing and voice systems.
