TMG is Finishing the Electrical Upgrades Phase at DCA

TMG is currently completing a $5.2 million campus utility distribution and central plant improvements project for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA).

TMG is about seven months into the project, which is scheduled to be completed at the end of September. Currently, TMG is finishing up the lighting system upgrades that are taking place throughout the entire airport. TMG is responsible for removing, storing, transporting and recycling all fluorescent light tubes, ballasts, high intensity discharge (HID), neon, ultraviolet (UV), mercury vapor, high pressure sodium, and metal halide lamps. The work began in the sub level of the airport, moved through the concourse level (back of house), went next to the terminals (the TSA secured side), then to all of the areas where people catch their planes, and then down the stairways and into the baggage claim areas. Once these sections are complete, TMG will move over into the ticketing areas before finally moving to the Airport Operations Area (i.e. the portion of the airport used for landing, take-off or surface maneuvering of aircraft).

About two weeks ago, TMG mobilized the next phase of the project which involves chilled water and heating water upgrades to the Rental Car customer service lobby and Administration area in Garage A.

Future phases of the project include installation of power meters at Terminal B/C mechanical rooms, thermal energy storage programming at the Central Utility Plan, Terminal B/C differential pressure sensor integration, and chilled water decoupling of mechanical rooms MER-2, MER-4 and MER-23.

Quality and safety receive top focus as TMG works throughout the entire occupied and active airport.

TMG’s team includes Harry Self, Superintendent; Rashid Muhammed, Safety; George Cois, Quality Control; Mohamed Askar, Project Manager; and Terry Dubbs, Project Executive.
