Recent Infrastructure Technology/Low Voltage Projects
Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA)
The Midfield Satellite Concourse (MSC) project is construction of a new terminal as an extension to Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX. DHS is responsible for supporting Terminal Element Project Managers with the requirements, design, and multiple contractor design coordination for specific IT and Special Systems that are being constructed and installed within Terminal Element projects. We function as an Owner’s Representative regarding IT systems to ensure that design and implementation adhere to LAWA’s established standards and practices by reviewing and commenting on design drawings, submittals and participating in contractor-led design workshops. DHS also serves as the IT liaison/coordinator between the construction and LAWA’s O&M team to ensure that systems are procured and configured properly. In addition to the MSC project, scope of work also includes reviewing and commenting on plans from the conceptual stage to 100% design during TIAP (Tenant Improvement Approval Process).
Los Angeles County Municipal Transportation Authority (LA Metro)
DHS provides IT Engineering and Low Voltage Infrastructure services to the LA Metro’s Information Technology Services (ITS) division. LA Metro ITS supports the information technology infrastructure hosting many of Metro’s operational and mission critical systems. The technology infrastructure spans across approximately 25 facilities located within a 60-mile radius of their Los Angeles headquarters. The infrastructure consists of over 4,000 computers, 600 servers, 170 applications (which include financial, transportation, material management, automated fare collection, SCADA and enterprise resource planning programs) and a variety of data, radio, voice, microwave radio, and closed-circuit television (CCTV) communications systems. ITS supports this technology and manages more than 300 outstanding projects to improve the use of existing technology as well as introducing new technologies that promote Metro’s ability to achieve its strategic business goals.
