Enoch Pratt Free Library
Modernization of historic Baltimore library
Implementing new building management system with additional building integration
Enoch Pratt Free Library is a 290,000 sq ft building in the heart of Baltimore city originally built in 1933. It is the central location of the country’s first free library system, Enoch Pratt, founded in 1886.
With over half a million visitors per year, it is one of the most popular destinations in Baltimore. The innovative adult and teen learning centers, in addition to a strong children’s program, have served the Baltimore community for over 80 years. The library is currently undergoing a renovation to upgrade its facilities and technologies while preserving the heritage of this historic site.
We will be providing the turnkey building management system (BMS) featuring our EcoStruxure product line. The building features finned tube radiation heating and a skylight cooling system which will be seamlessly controlled through our BMS solution. The entirely new Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing (MEP) and life safety systems will ensure the building’s occupants remain safe and comfortable as the library continues to serve the people of Baltimore. We were awarded the project in 2016 and the renovation is expected to be completed in 2019. The library will remain open for the duration of the project.
Chesapeake Bay Bridge & Tunnel
Cape Charles, VA
Bridge and Tunnel System
Development and implementation of infrastructure
To meet future traffic demands and provide for safer travel, construction of a parallel crossing for the Chesapeake Bay Bridge began in the summer of 1995 and opened to four-lane traffic on April 19, 1999.
When the Chesapeake Bridge & Tunnel needed a security vendor to protect its roadway, they turned to us to provide the following critical security infrastructure:
- Andover Continuum Physical Access Control Systems (PACS)
- Gate controls with loop detectors
- 125 CCTV cameras consisting of IP and thermal technologies
- Enterprise-wide digital recording system with remote viewing capability
- Integrated intercom system with 144 substations
With our Andover Continuum access control platform and a proven track record of successful complex integrations, our solution was the best fit for their needs. Our flexibility in protocol and system integration allowed for seamless integration between the security system, IP Intercom, and video integration. This project began in July 2013 and it was completed May 2015.
Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority
Implemented comprehensive municipality security solution
The WMATA Metrorail is one of the largest public transportation systems in the US, with 90 stations, 50 parking and support facilities, and over 106 miles of tracks carrying approximately 750,000 passengers daily. The location and scope of the WMATA system demands reliability and security while maintaining commuter comfort and convenience.
WMATA needed a comprehensive security solution that would bring together their legacy and new security systems and support a large number of devices across hundreds of sites while providing ease of use, high reliability, and future growth potential.
We were selected based on several factors, including our ability to execute large-scale, integrated, and enterprise level security system installations. Our integrated, cost effective solution included Verint Nextiva VMS, CNL IPSecurityCenter PSIM and video analytics. Together, these three systems offered a proven track record, openness, survivability, and scalability. Our customer service and integration capabilities provided a highly experienced and effective team to execute the solution to WMATA’s exacting standards. The project began in March 2012 and it is ongoing with anticipated completion in July 2017. Our service contract will allow us to remain involved through December 2018.
