SDI & Encon Develop Crypto Mining Facilities

SDI Architecture, a Boston-based international architectural and interior design firm that develops distinct, custom designs, centered upon the user’s experience, announced today, its partnership with Encon EPM, LLC to build facilities specifically to house electric and computer power for cryptocurrency mining.

In order to meet this increasing demand for immense amounts of power needed for crypto mining, SDI and Encon EPM will work together as “The Crypto Facility Design Group" to offer the services and expertise needed to develop high-functioning crypto mining centers.  The team will offer fast-tracked construction and design schedules, various industry-specific team coordination and specialized project permit pre-approvals and will include all architecture, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection planning aspects.

Building a facility specific to the needs of crypto mining is still relatively new to the architecture and engineering industry and takes specific knowledge and heavy coordination between all trades in order to build one that can successfully deliver the power needed for mining. The Crypto Facility Design Group will create solutions that will be efficient in layout, fitting in as many mining machines as possible and keeping the runs for power and cooling to a minimum.

“Crypto mining is very popular right now and continues to grow as an income stream at an extraordinary pace and the need for data centers is overwhelming,” said Ben Williams, Principal, SDI Architecture. “With our design expertise and the engineering background of Encon in the building of mission-critical data centers, telecommunication, and broadcast communication, our group will be able to offer currency miners rapid and complete options for these centers.”

The centers require a hefty power source close by and affordable space that can be zoned for such a project. The combination of the need for space at a low price, appropriately zoned, combined with the high power needs takes an in-depth knowledge of the construction, conservation, scope of work and code compliance.

“The demand for crypto mining facilities has exploded,” said John Carlo Saber, president of Encon EPM. “With that comes two key challenges: the need for timely engineering design and construction, and the acquisition of the required electrical power at favorable utility rates.  As part of several experienced crypto teams, Encon can move from concept to profitable crypto facility with unprecedented speed.”
