Turnpike Industrial Park Building Renovations – Data Center Facility/Traffic Operations Center
STV was contracted by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) to serve as the construction manager and construction inspector for the multi-phase renovation of the Turnpike Industrial Park (TIP) Building. The first phase of this program transformed the single-story, approximately 103,000-square-foot facility into a new Tier 3 Data Center, complete with a PBX Room and associated mechanical and electrical support spaces and systems. For the second phase, a 13,174-square-foot traffic operations center (TOC) was added to the facility. The TOC is a high-tech communications hub outfitted with computer monitors and cameras, allowing controllers to monitor and manage the entire PTC network.
Portions of the TIP Building were occupied during the renovations, so all demolition and construction work was phased to allow the occupants to go about their activities while maintaining uninterrupted continuity of utility and communications connectivity.
To maximize project efficiency, STV closely monitored construction scheduling and cost controls, provided on-site inspections to verify compliance with contract documents, reviewed and negotiated change orders and managed a commissioning agent.
