Clark Pacific was presented with a 2012 PCI Design Award for its work on the SV5 Data Center in San Jose, CA.  As data centers grow in importance, bringing them online quickly can play a key role in their success. Given one year from notice to proceed to occupancy, architects used contrasting colors of architectural precast concrete wall panels to clad the building and provide a distinctive, random-looking exterior.  “The data center made a great choice in using precast concrete to showcase a big box,” says Debra Kunce, a member of the buildings awards jury. “It took precast to a different level by creating different forms and using undulations to really showcase the entry and make it different. It’s more than just a big box.”
