AT&T Networking Operations Center Expansion
Project Location: Bedminster Township, NJ
Client: AT&T Corporation
Completion Date: 2002
AT&T’s 800,000 square foot Corporate Campus is located along US Route 206 in Bedminster Township, New Jersey. When the company sought to expand the complex to include a 180,000 square foot Network Operations Center, it contracted with PDE to provide site, civil, traffic and environmental engineering services associated with the project.
PDE prepared site plans, stormwater management reports, and other documents required to obtain the necessary approvals from the Township and County.
Another PDE assignment was to conduct a Traffic Impact Study and obtain driveway access permits from the New Jersey Department of Transportation. The study determined that the client would be responsible for constructing an off-site highway improvement project along Route 206 that was necessary in order to handle increased traffic flow associated with the expanded complex.
PDE then developed the highway design drawings for the required improvement project and secured appropriate approvals from the Departments of Transportation and Environmental Protection.
As a result of PDE’s efforts, AT&T was able to expand their Campus to include a new Network Operations Center (NOC) while minimizing the impacts on the environment. The off-site traffic improvements mitigated potential traffic impacts and improved roadway conditions for both AT&T and non-site related traffic.
