The 12,000 SF space for the Metro Transit Control Center presented many challenges for electrical design and power distribution. With the help of the TKDA team, the control center was optimized to deliver the best possible transit operations.
TKDA’s power distribution design included normal utility power, generator power, and an Uninterruptible Power Supply System. In order to ensure reliable power and meet the requirements of the 800Mh Motorola Radio System and Automatic Vehicle Loading system TKDA added a supplemental ground system. With a fire alarm system, card access security, closed circuit surveillance and a controllable, glare-free space, the control center operates safely at high efficiency.
