The Korte Company was selected as the Construction Manager for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation’s Tier 3 Data Center within the OSBI Forensic Science Center in Edmond, Oklahoma.
The almost 10,000-square-foot state-of-the-art data center was an integral component of the new facility. The building, which is located adjacent to the University of Central Oklahoma’s forensic education program, is home to 70 criminalists, evidence technicians and support staff members.
The facility contains cutting-edge audiovisual equipment and a custom-designed computer room and has become one of the best forensic laboratories in the country.
A new, fully enclosed mechanical yard was constructed to accommodate a new chiller and generator needed to support the data center. Selective demolition of existing finishes throughout the facility was required to construct the new data center, which also required new mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems.
