As the Prime Contractor for MDT’s Metrorail Control Center Upgrade Design Build Project, B&C Transit Inc. has embarked upon the modernization of the existing Central Control Facility. The MRCC modernization project will include the renovation of the existing Central Control Facility, an adjacent office space, upgrading and replacing the HVAC on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors, the Power Distribution Units, the Uninterruptible Power Supplies, Electrical Systems, and replacement of existing systems hardware and software.
B&C Transit Inc. will provide an updated control system for the MRCC upgrade project. The control system will integrate hardware components and software applications to provide MDT with the capability to monitor and control the Orange and Green line transit systems from the central control facility. The upgrade will incorporate a state-of-the-art integrated audio/visual display system that will allow workstations and video screen walls to be configurable for a variety of functions.
The new Control Center will include a centrally managed platform to support communications equipment, including Facility SCADA, Motive Power SCADA, the public address system, platform displays, and other
key components used by supervisors to manage operations and other safety systems. The work provided by B&C Transit Inc. provided customized open software and associated hardware, for the Control Center to integrate data from MDT systems so that data could be displayed for MDT staff on a customizable interface.
