Project Profile: Travis County Correctional Center, Texas

Project: Security Control Systems Upgrades & Renovation

Scope of Work: Professional Systems Engineering was engaged by Travis County to provide for replacement and upgrades to existing control systems and detention hardware in Buildings 140 and 160 at the Travis County Correctional Complex. PSE provided design and engineering services to deliver cutting edge results on which all future control system work throughout Travis County is now being based.

This project included two separate facilities, one housing the Maximum Security male inmates, and the other housing the Maximum Security female inmates. Services for these two facilities required the upgrade and replacement of two Master Control Centers, seven Local Control Stations, intercom and paging systems, and detention hardware. Our design services enabled the Travis County to save $250,000 and receive a state-of-the-art control system that is non-proprietary, easy to maintain, and provides a safe and secure environment.
