Austin Convention Center

Austin, Texas

Austin’s world-class convention center draws hundreds of thousands of visitors annually and is one of the most technologically advanced convention centers in the country, due to its state-of-the-art communication and utility services.

Serving as Prime MEP engineer, Encotech designed the convention center's electrical system upgrades and oversaw electrical construction in 2009.  The upgrades provided a significant increase in available power in the main exhibit halls.  Encotech upgraded the existing switchgear, reconfigured existing electrical panels, added electrical receptacles in meeting rooms and worked closely with convention center staff to oversee the complex construction schedule while not impacting normal convention operations.

The project was completed on-time and on-budget, and the installation did not impact normal operations helping the Center achieve its world-class “gigabit-rated” building designation.
