Gulf Building LLC has reached the final phase of the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority’s operations center and Pompano Tri-Rail improvements. They include the agency’s first LEED-certified station. Gulf was selected as general contractor for the project, which will be adjacent to the SFRTA’s new headquarters in Pompano Beach, Florida.
The reconstructed station will feature solar panels that will provide all of the power needed to operate the facility. Among the other additions to the station will be native vegetation that requires less frequent watering, an overpass that will enable passengers to cross from platform to platform without having to cross at grade level, and energy efficient elevators to access the pedestrian bridge. The station will also provide new secure bicycle lockers, dedicated alternative fuel-source parking, carpool and van-pool parking, LED lighting fixtures, and a shaded, reconfigured parking lot.
