In addition to engineering and commissioning the main MiamiCentral station and development in Miami, TLC provided engineering and commissioning services on the Brightline stations in Fort Lauderale and West Palm Beach. The stations were designed to integrate into transit operations and to cultivate thriving urban environments. Both stations have distinctive architectural signatures that include V-shaped columns and offer a multi-story lobby, elevated passenger lounge and concessions, along with waiting areas and amenities for travelers.
The Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach Brightline Stations were constructed as ‘in-line’ stations, meaning they were built over active rail lines, requiring detailed coordination with the contractor and East Coast Railroad. The MEP team met with the respective cities, utilities and fire marshals to gain support for our design intent of providing services from the existing underground utilities. The building is comprised of two sections, the pedestrian entrance lobby at street level and the above rail and train platform structure which straddles the train tracks. MEP / FP / Technology services were run in the underside of a bridge that connects the two elements.
