Transportation Facilities are complex facilities with large fluctuations in occupancy and purpose: Remote storage, and infrastructure locations, remote communication towers, remote power, outdoor yards, reception areas, conference rooms, offices, landing strips, ticket counters, drive up areas, security checkpoints, restaurants, airport facilities, and parking lots or structures all have different requirements. Today, Transportation Facilities are under increased scrutiny to save money, protect their employees and travelers, and improve function in this fast changing technical environment.
IntraWorks takes a proactive approach to these issues by studying new industry trends in transportation facilities and applying electronic building system technology to help save money, reduce risk, and improve function. Additionally, IntraWorks uses a comprehensive approach to the infrastructure facility itself by considering ALL the electronic building systems when planning the next upgrade, move, add or change. Lastly, IntraWorks offers constant commissioning and predictive maintenance in order to save building life cycle costs. (Up to 10x according to the Department of Energy – O&M Best Practices)

The latest in Transportation Safety Technology
Facility managers have a crucial responsibility in ensuring the safety and protection of workers, staff, and the public at transportation facilities. These locations face various threats, such as insider and outsider risks, theft of assets, materials, data, and computers, workplace violence, terrorism, vandalism, and other security concerns. IntraWorks offers advanced and integrated security solutions, including CCTV, access control, perimeter, and intrusion systems, to mitigate potential harm to travelers and building occupants. Utilizing video and audio analytics, these systems can detect suspicious activities like digging, supply line and rail track tampering, perimeter breaches, intrusions, and safety violations. Swift notifications to authorities enable prompt responses, minimizing disruptions in service, and safeguarding lives and reputations. Additionally, the implementation of special-purpose radios or communicators keeps workers informed of emergencies, requests, or special needs in real-time.
Transportation Facilities utilize a lot of energy and resources to provide a pleasant environment for its travelers and to produce a consistent service. IntraWorks can provide systems that save energy costs and make the buildings or transportation systems more comfortable to work or stay in. By use of advanced climate controls, energy management, lighting control, daylight harvesting systems, sub-metering, energy tariff loading and constant commissioning, our transportation facility solutions can help to save in overall facility energy life cycle costs.
Transportation Facilities prioritize tight safety standards to safeguard their workers and travelers. IntraWorks offers injury-prevention systems that are vital during emergencies. Advanced fire detection and evacuation, critical systems monitoring, mass communication, paging, mass texting, utility supply monitoring, perimeter sensing, and CCTV systems enable early detection of emergencies and rapid evacuation or redirection of occupants. In situations involving, weather events, or external threats, the building serves as a safe haven. Integrated bullet-resistant barriers provide additional protection for all facility occupants.
By truly integrating Security, Energy, and Safety Systems together, a transportation facility becomes more intelligent and efficient. Employees and travelers within the facilities are more comfortable, informed, and safe. Integrating systems is a plus sum situation whereby the effectiveness of each system is augmented by becoming connected to other systems. For example: Facilities that use the security system or access system to sense occupancy can reduce electric and HVAC costs when area occupants are not present. Fire Systems that use the HVAC system to evacuate smoke can save lives in a burning building. Intercom/Communication systems that utilize CCTV verification are more effective. When all of these systems are connected and the information becomes available to authorized persons with graphical user interfaces (smart phone, computer, tablet), the efficiency and effectiveness are unmatched by any individual system. Simply put… Intelligent buildings work better and use less energy.
