Re: Wasting more $$$ I worked out of a secure facility like that, though it was a little bit smaller. The computer bays were designed to survive airplane hits, 150 mph hurricanes and tornadoes, etc.
To get in to the facility you had to go thru 2 guard stations. And that was just for the office part. To get back in to the server farm, telecom and network gear areas, network control center, and the mechanical and power rooms you had to proceed thru a 1 person at a time guarded isolation booth. The booth checked your weight, hand geometry, and iris scan, and blew air over you checking for any explosive materials, as well as your id card scan. Change of shift for the network operators was quite a production.
When my staff had to get back there to work on telecom/network gear it took a few minutes just to get a couple techs in to the work areas.
