Control Room Design
The Control Room is the heartbeat of your operations. Design matters. We design from the operators out, putting their needs at the forefront — from their personal workspace, to how they interact with others, work with technology, and use employee amenities. We develop an environment that helps attract and retain operators, maximizing productivity and situational awareness.
Control Room Ergonomics
Seating and air quality for operator comfort, sight lines to video displays and appropriate lighting to reduce eye strain, acoustics to reduce distractions, all guided by ISO 11064.
Ergonomic workstations that offer leading-edge technology, durability, sit-stand capabilities, personal environmental controls, storage, and collaboration spaces.
State-of-the-art Video Solutions
Video display options, such as narrow-bezel LCD, video cubes, and direct-view LED, and innovative processing options.
Overview and conference rooms, kitchens, break and bunk rooms, and fatigue-mitigation rooms based on client-specific needs.
All Under One Roof
Our Control Center Design Team
Each of our in-house Architects and Engineers has extensive mission-critical expertise — many of them more than 25 years. These are designers who, like you, live and breathe system operations centers. We employ all design disciplines under one roof, where they are accessible and accountable to each of our clients.
Work with a design team with a reputation for excellence.
Creative and detail oriented, our Architects develop conceptual and detailed designs for your customized, state-of-the-art Control Center. They design from the operator out, ensuring building codes and ergonomic principles are top of mind.
Understanding the complexities of zoning and permitting, our Civil Engineers analyze site suitability, stormwater management, security, traffic flow, parking, wetlands, all while adhering to land use regulations and environmental initiatives.
Meticulous problem solvers, our Structural Engineers design the critical facility’s shell, from foundation to roof, to ensure protection from natural and man-made threats.
Our Mechanical Engineers evaluate the most efficient and reliable design options for HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection systems for your Control Center, understanding the technical needs for your critical environment.
Our Electrical Engineers’ goal is to ensure continuous operations. They identify and design for all your system operations power needs, from load calculations and redundant protected sources, to security and appropriate workplace lighting for operators.
Our Control Center designers understand and implement the rapidly developing and highly technical specifications required to protect 24/7 facilities from electromagnetic pulse damage.
for your High-Reliability Facility
Designing a mission-critical Control Center is not something most architects do.
We do it every day.
