KETV at Burlington Train Station in Omaha, Nebraska was a unique project that entailed transforming a train station built in 1898 into a truly state-of-the-art television station. KETV had outgrown it’s previous location and went searching for a new facility. The train station met their mission critical systems space requirement, parking and location requirements though it would require a large overhaul.
DFW Consulting Group and Architecture firm Leo A Daly were brought together by Hearst Broadcasting in order to update this historic train station. Up-to-date technology, electrical, heating, and cooling systems were integrated in a manner that had minimal impact on the original architecture. Meeting the needs of the owner required total renovation of all systems. Our scope of work included exterior lighting, modeling of the site, building facade, and ighting for the interior atrium using indirect LED flood lights.
A green HVAC system was designed and utilized 8 air handling units in order to deliver air to each part of the building efficiently and quietly in broadcasting spaces.
Additionally, we provided the design of backup generators, uninterrupted power source, automatic transfer switches for all mission critical loads and technical operations center.
Slab deicing systems were also designed for personnel access walkways.
