We provided engineering design at the Brooklyn Army Terminal for multiple projects including office space, a data center, and a call center. We also supported the design of a new command and control center. And we prepared an Emergency Action Plan for two of the buildings.
In the area where the office space and data center are located, we reused the existing MEP/FP systems. By doing so, we saved the client money and were better able to meet the tight schedule. We also added a new UPS for the data center.
For the area where the call center is located, we designed new MEP/FP systems, which included a new 120-ton rooftop chiller with AHU, a perimeter hot water radiation system, and a UPS.
The new Master Television System Command and Control Center accommodates the technology required to monitor the security of the city’s ports. Our work on this project involved tie-in of security, fire alarm, gas monitoring, and telephone communication systems into the master building control.
Our team developed a fire safety/Emergency Action Plan (EAP) for Buildings A and B. Our work included analyzing the existing conditions of the fire safety systems in the two buildings and developing accurate engineering drawings to reflect what existed in the spaces. We then developed a comprehensive EAP plan which we reviewed with the FDNY in order to obtain approval for the plan. We oversaw the tasks performed by two subconsultants.
