Studio 151 is contracted to perform Project Management Support Services (PMSS) as Special Systems Manager responsible overseeing the design-builder team. SFO is reconstructing the space between Terminal 2 (T2) and Terminal 3 (T3), which includes updating the pre-security connector, building a new post-security secure connector and constructing a 6-story office building. Project scope provides emergency systems connections and baggage handling system updates, and constructed as needed make-ready relocations, in anticipation of the new buildings. This includes additional shell spaces in T2 needed to maintain operations and critical Airport facilities for the Communications Center, Security Operations Center and associated Infrastructure; including special systems, security, communications, and utilities. T2 and T3 has and remains fully operational at all times during the implementation of the Construction work expected to complete June 2022.
Studio 151 coordinated with Airport stakeholders throughout the project. Our role focuses on Airport Security and special systems programming, design, construction, provisioning, and activation. Led by Eric Wennstrom, Principal, our staff supports Aviation Security Management (AvSec) to generate a plan to be used during shutdowns, systems activation, training and turnover in support of the temporary relocation and move back into new building for the Communication Operations Center, Security Operations Center and other related AvSec Emergency Response functions. The initial cutover was smoothly accomplished without hitch in September 2019.
Studio 151 as Special Systems Manager directly coordinated with Airport Staff to modernize without interruption: Next Gen911, AT&T Vesta System, Motorola Call Log/Radio headend, PSAP, legacy 911 trunks, 48 unique emergency responder systems, METS, and Paging.
