The Miami Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) houses communications equipment essential to monitoring and tracking air traffic in the Miami region.
The 50,000 SF facility is composed of a 15,000 SF communications equipment room supported by a 12,000 SF maintenance facility, 15,000 of storage and support areas, and an 8,000 SF utility plant. The utility plant includes a 2,500 SF boiler room, 2,700 SF chiller room, 2,000 SF air handler room, and 1,000 SF controls room. As part of a nationwide modernization program, the Miami Center was renovated and upgraded. Changes to the communications equipment room included replacement of finish materials and lighting systems. To support the tracking equipment, electrical power and data infrastructures were upgraded and reconfigured. In the utility plant, existing air handling units, chillers, cooling towers, pumps, and associated piping and water treatment systems were replaced. Room configurations were modified to accommodate the replacement equipment; room finishes were upgraded, and partitions were repaired and remodeled to meet code requirements.
TMG performed the work in a fully operational 100,000 SF facility to provide n+1 redundant cooling, power, and infrastructure to support the facility’s computing and communication equipment.
