Project info

TransLink is building a new state-of-the-art operations control centre to handle the growing SkyTrain network, making it more accessible and accommodating more trains for a smoother commuter experience. This expansion features a larger data centre and advanced automatic train controls, providing increased capacity for the growing network.

This centre is expected to be operational for the launch of the Broadway Subway extension and will support the future Surrey-Langley SkyTrain expansion when it’s ready. To ensure uninterrupted operations, this four-storey building includes robust UPS and generator systems.

We are providing electrical and technology solutions for the project, including electrical distribution, lighting, fire alarm, structured cabling, communications cabling, security, and lightning protection. Our team will be installing over 11,700 ft of TECK90 cable, 2,500 ft of 288 strand fiber cable, and 24 5,000 lb UPS cabinets to complete this advanced facility.

Project info

Ranked as #29 on the ReNew Top 100 Canada’s Biggest Infrastructure Projects list, the Broadway Subway Project will extend the existing SkyTrain Millennium Line by 5.7 km from VCC-Clark Station to Broadway and Arbutus in Vancouver.

Designed with “Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design” principles, the stations will feature an open and transparent layout, good lighting, and top security systems to maximize visibility and safety. With the integration of these stations into Vancouver’s existing transit networks and cycling facilities, this project will help provide fast, frequent, and convenient SkyTrain service to BC’s second largest jobs centre, world-class health services, an emerging innovation and research hub, and growing residential communities.

Our team is providing electrical and technology solutions for the new stations, including power distribution, lighting, life safety, security systems, and communications systems. This includes management and SCADA systems, wayside monitoring, and tunnel ventilation systems. Additionally, we are working with virtual design, including BIM 3D modeling, to assist with constructability review, trades clash detection, and resolution input.
