Microsoft Corp. has launched construction on a $50-million cooling center near its Westover Hills computer server farm at 5150 Rogers Rd. in San Antonio. Corgan Associates of Dallas is the general contractor of the cooling facility, which is expected to be completed in September 2017.
The new building, which will be on the 5100 block of Rogers Road, will be used to cool an $80-million, 256,000-square-foot data center that opened in Westover Hills in 2015. The central utility building will have water-cooled centrifugal chillers, along with other mechanical and electrical infrastructure, so existing data centers will have expanded cooling capacity.
Microsoft has four data centers in San Antonio. Two are in Westover Hills and two are on San Antonio’s far west side, inside the Texas Research Park.
