Project Description

CTA complex (campus) to include a Control Center and Training Facility. The facility will be equipped with modern state of the art technology, heighten security criteria and redundant power sources. The Control Center portion of campus will include an auditorium, situation room, network operations center, and communication and training rooms. While, the new training facility portion of the campus will contain offices, classrooms, and conference rooms for CTA employee training. The training facility will contain both bus and railcar inspection pits including embedded rail track and testing track for rail operations. This project consolidates training functions across the agency within a centralized facility. Currently training is dispersed throughout the CTA system at various garages, yards, and offices due to space limitations. Thousands of CTA operating and maintenance employees use these facilities for employee training, instruction programs, and employee engagement. The primary rail and maintenance training is performed at a leased space and lacks all components necessary for proper training.
