dockdoors1MSE completed design of a new operations center for Salt River Electric (RECC) in Bardstown, Kentucky. Salt River Electric serves over 10,000 consumers in 10 counties in central Kentucky. The facility will be 36,600 SF in size and is designed to resist storm events that are 20 percent more severe than the requirements of the Kentucky Building Code. The facility houses the operations and dispatch center for the electric utility’s emergency response and outage teams for the entire service network. A computer based operations center allows display of the utility network in real-time on wall size projections. Outages and damage locations are immediately identified for dispatch of repair teams. Adjacent to the facility, a 300 foot communications tower was constructed to allow co-location of all Bardstown-Nelson County 911, police and fire dispatch communications. facade2
