Edward Jones Office & Data Center

This 190,000-square-foot, six-story building consolidates resources into an innovative facility housing the company’s Information Systems Division. The building was constructed to house approximately 800 permanently assigned office residents but has the capacity to accommodate more than 2,000 people in the training configuration. The components of this project include a six-story office building containing a two-story auditorium, training center and 30,000-square-foot data center, as well as a new five-level, 970-car parking structure.

The second floor is situated on access flooring and functions as a data center, where the campus LAN/WAN network is terminated. This configuration provides redundancy for voice and data connectivity and processing. The new facility houses key components of the firm’s Information Systems division. It is designed and built to a 1.5 Seismic Importance Factor, the highest that can be achieved, which provides an extra safety adjustment to increase the calculated load on a structure based on its occupancy and function. Attaining the seismic factor required complex structural connections and seismic restraint of mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems generally not found in buildings of this type.
