An interesting assortment of projects ranging from reviewing incident/accident reports for a Government agency through to being part of a multi-discipline team to deliver a control room.

Control Room Design Projects 

I been involved in a number of control room design projects -

  • Central Control Room, Watercare. Worked with Control Room staff to benchmark the existing facility and define a list of requirements that could be fed into any design for an upgraded facility. Auckland, New Zealand.
  • Traffic Management Centre (TMC) Control Room, NZ Transport Agency. I worked closely with the architects and the videowall installers to define workspace layout, workstations requirements for 18 staff, lighting, viewing angles/distances and optimal height of the state-of-the-art video wall and how the information was to be delivered. NZ Transport Agency, Auckland, New Zealand.
  • I was involved in defining the user requirements for the SH20 Tunnel Control Room as part of the Waterview Tunnel project. I designed this control room to interface easily with the new TMC Control Room to ensure continuity with control function and a degree of flexibility in the event of an emergency and only one control room was operational. NZ Transport Agency, Auckland, New Zealand.
  • Integrated human factors through the physical design of the new control point, NZ Customs, Auckland, New Zealand.
