MTA B&T Hugh L. Carey Tunnel & Queens-Midtown Tunnel Vent Building Fire Alarm & Smoke Detection Systems

Various locations, NY


AI is providing fire alarm design services for a Design-Build project with EJ Electric involving the installation of Fire Alarm and Smoke Detector Systems at the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel and Queens Midtown Tunnel Ventilation and Exhaust Buildings, Service Buildings and Pump Rooms.

This project will modernize the many support structures and buildings that are part of the Queens Midtown Tunnel and the Hugh L. Carry Tunnel systems with new Fire Alarm and Smoke Detection Systems. These systems will help to increase the early warning and detection of possible fire or smoke events within these spaces, which will improve the proper and safe operation of the tunnels. This project is part of the ongoing effort to ensure that the MTA system continues to provide a safe environment for all users while complying with all applicable codes and regulations.
