Project Lone Star Building B-100 is a state-of-the-art four story, 120,000 square foot, office building housing Advanced Micro Devices’ (AMD) executive and administrative teams.
This private industry project was part of the phased construction of a multiple building worldwide electronic computer chip manufacturer’s administrative campus. The project received a Gold Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) rating from the U.S. Green Building Council. AMD Project Lone Star as a whole was the largest LEED gold project in Texas at the time it was completed, and set a new standard for sustainable development. The project received an Outstanding Construction Award from the Associated General Contractors of America Austin Chapter.
Solis successfully completed the construction of a 4,940 SF pre-engineered building. The control center is located at one of the City of Austin’s power plant facilities, so security was of great concern. We were provided a separate entrance onto the facility and were given full responsibility for maintaining control and access to the project site. Temporary security measures included background checks on all personnel entering the site, badging of approved workers and monitoring of the construction entrance with a full time security guard. No security breaches or incidents were recorded during the construction of this project.

Solis successfully completed electrical upgrades, which included installation of new electrical service, new distribution panels, transfer switch, new diesel generator, new UPS system, new under floor outlet system, new security system and power to new HVAC units. HVAC upgrades included the removal and replacement of an existing package rooftop unit, removal and replacement of existing computer room AC units and condensers, and the addition of two new computer room AC units and condensers. The scope of work also included demolition of existing walls, doors and security hardware. All work was performed in phases so there was no disruption to the daily operation of the existing occupied data center.
