Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) has received a 2011 Green Enterprise IT Award for green innovation at the company’s new 140,000 square-foot Cyber Integration Center in the U.S.

 

The awards, presented by the Uptime Institute, recognized Harris and its design/build contractor, Lee Technologies, in the “Audacious Idea” category for a unique, multizone water containment system that allows irrigation of the entire 4.5 acres of landscape property without using potable water.

The CIC was engineered and constructed with high availability and energy efficiency as main goals, said Robert Whelen, vice president of real estate and environmental, health and safety, Harris Corporation.

“The green design of the closed-loop system had a capital payback of less than 18 months and results in lower operating costs for the next-generation data center through more efficient cooling,” he added.

The design of the center also resulted in registration under the LEED Green Building Rating System and an expected Power Usage Effectiveness under 1.36.

Harris unveiled the new center May 27, 2011, and marked the occasion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and presentations by President and CEO Howard L. Lance and Dale W. Meyerrose, vice president and general manager of CIC, among others.
