Control Rooms for Power Utilities

We supply fully integrated transportable control rooms to large power utilities, municipalities, and independent power cooperatives.

Small switching stations and complex substations alike benefit from our ability to engineer, construct, and electrically integrate control rooms to any level of difficulty, for any power utilities application. Our engineering and engineering team can begin with as little as a building concept and one-line schematics, then quickly and effectively deliver a fully integrated working system - on time and on budget.

Within your requirements, we can provide a turnkey system and include all necessary switchgear, distribution equipment, and backup power. If requested, our control panel shop can build and install protection control panels.

Also, depending on size, we can build either single-unit or multi-unit modular structures to be reassembled at the jobsite. You'll like the fact that our service teams are available at the jobsite to supervise unloading and reassembly and to assist in electrical reconnections.

Equally reassuring is that our control rooms are engineered to withstand harsh environments and provide full service for the life of the substation. Compared to other types of structures, including those built onsite, our control rooms arrive at your site ready for service. That makes them especially cost effective.

Although most of our control rooms are fabricated from G90 galvanized steel, we also build them in other materials, including aluminum or stainless steel. Regardless of the materials, we protect all interior and exterior surfaces with a combination of two-part, catalyzed epoxy and polyurethane finishes.

Every power utilities project and location is unique. That's why our building system is highly flexible. We can accommodate major modifications and adapt to almost any interior or interior requirement, including…

  • size
  • removable wall sections
  • provisions for expansion
  • doors
  • windows
  • access for cable
  • insulation
  • acoustic dampening
  • lighting

Every control room is engineered as a portable structure, totally self-supporting from the base, and can be mounted directly to framework, piers, pads, or foundations with all equipment installed.

The construction also is self-framing, using an interlocking panel wall and roof system with smooth exterior and interior surfaces.

The walls and roof are assembled on a heavy-duty welded steel base of structural shapes and beams. These are chosen and arranged to provide the engineered structural integrity and to receive any floor-mounted equipment.

Typically, the bottom of the base is supplied with a welded and sealed inner panel. This provides both weather and rodent seal, holds floor insulation, and allows for convenient building penetration for external wires and cables.

The entire base is considered a wireway because all points throughout the structure are accessible from the subfloor wireway system. It's a cost-effective wiring method that generally eliminates the need for overhead cable trays.
