The Chicago Department of Aviation required the replacement of the existing Parking Access and Revenue Control Technology (PARCT) at Chicago O’Hare International Airport serving six parking lots with more than 25,000 spaces. SPAAN Tech served as the Chicago based team lead for engineers and contractors on the design and implementation of sustentative changes to the existing system’s electrical components and communication infrastructure.
Electrical designs were prepared for data, communication and power for parking lot lane equipment such as attendant booths, entry/exit lanes, signage, gates, pay stations and license plate recognition cameras. SPAAN Tech provided plans, specifications and estimates for conduit and plaza modifications, installation plans and final record drawings.
For the Build Phase, SPAAN Tech worked as the Construction Manager. This firm coordinated the full implementation of equipment, fiber, etc. STI self-performed electrical working with Local 134. The firm stepped in to assist our client to navigate O’Hare processes and procedures to ensure full functionality and minimal impact to users and stakeholders. This included the installation of new fiber, piping, and wiring to support the system. STI technicians installed and connected communication and data lines and power for parking lot lane equipment such as attendant booths, entry/exit lanes, signage, gates, pay stations and license plate recognition cameras.
