NYCT 7 Line Extension Fire Alarm Design

Arora assisted in the construction phase of the MTA 7 Line Extension project by providing expert fire alarm design services.

The 7 Line Extension project extends the existing line approximately 1.5 miles from the Port Authority Bus Terminal and includes the construction of a new station located at 34th St. and 11th Ave, as well as multiple ventilation buildings along the track extension.

The project required the design of multiple networked fire alarm panels to service each building and two-way communication with the MTA operations command center through the existing SCADA network. The fire alarm systems provided smoke and heat detection in mission-critical areas such as communication and electrical rooms, as well as visual notification and voice evacuation throughout the public areas.
