MBTA Emergency Training Center, Broadway Station, Boston, Mass.

Architectural Engineers provided electrical design and construction administration for the complete renovation of the abandoned Broadway Station tunnel into a new 15,000 SF MBTA Emergency Training Center (ETC). The ETC is the second of its kind in the country and is used to teach MBTA, police, fire and medical staff how to handle crises underground. The center contains three replica train platforms as well as two classrooms for training purposes. The project was fast-tracked and designed, built, and operational in an unusually short period of time (one year). Design included normal and emergency lighting systems, fire alarm, security, and smart boards tied to new conference training facilities located above the station.  All training systems were interconnected back to the central monitoring facility located at 45 High Street.
