Agile engineering for rapid deployment
Noise Control Solutions for North American Data Centers
As demand for data processing grows, so does the pressure to build more data centers faster. Rapid delivery and full control over scheduling risk are two of the key measures of deployment success for facility operators. But the cooling and power generation systems that keep these mission-critical facilities operational often produce excessive sound emissions. Mitigating that noise and limiting regulatory risk requires specialized attenuation expertise to bring facilities into regulatory compliance and avoid costly fines or operational disruptions.
Parklane is a turnkey provider of noise control solutions for data centers across North America. We work with facility operators to help them achieve complete regulatory compliance with regard to noise emissions, while developing strategies to integrate noise control solutions with existing mechanical systems and building designs.
Because we manage every aspect of the sound attenuation process—including engineering, manufacturing and delivery— we maintain total control over the final deliverable. Our agile delivery process and collaborative approach enable us to mitigate downstream scheduling risks to ensure that data center noise mitigation projects are delivered on time.
A growing challenge
Data center facility developers are working harder than ever to secure permitting, manage construction and bring data centers operational using a rapid delivery model.
With limited real estate in many urban centers across the United States and Canada—and the need for reliable fiber optic connections and power infrastructure—larger, more complex data centers are increasingly being built in closer proximity to residential areas.
The challenge: data center cooling and power generation infrastructure—components such as air handlers, chillers and emergency generator sets—are typically located outside of these facilities to maximize floor space for equipment. That can result in unwanted mechanical noise emissions that require mitigation, especially in jurisdictions with strict noise compliance legislation.
An agile approach to data center noise control
Our agile engineering and trades teams work closely with project stakeholders and leverage our in-house capabilities to provide structural, mechanical, and building envelope solutions that mitigate unforeseen challenges that emerge during the course of a mission-critical project.
To support consistent scheduling transparency, our comprehensive project management system provides daily project updates with real-time scheduling reports to mitigate the risk of delays and ensure on-time solutions delivery.
Our Data Center Noise Control Solutions
Custom Silencer Systems
Silencers are designed to attenuate transmission of sound through heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in both interior and exterior environments.
Modular Acoustic Plenums and Acoustic Louvers Assemblies
Acoustic Barriers and Screens
Mechanical Acoustic Enclosures
Vibration Control and Seismic Restraint
A common issue is high ambient noise levels in occupied spaces. Often this a result of structure-induced vibration, typically caused by mechanical equipment or riser systems that are rigidly connected to a building structure.
Success is in the details
We work with industry, architects, acoustic engineers, consultants and contractors to develop effective screen system solutions.
