One World Trade Center

IDL Electric had the privilege to be a part of rebuilding One World Trade Center, Freedom Tower. Our participation started with the installation of the fiber optic backbone for the environmental management system of the building.

This included normal and emergency power risers extending up from the fourth sub-basement through to the roof’s mechanical room. The second phase of our work involved the electrical installation of the extremely sensitive security system for the loading dock area.

7 Line Extension

IDL Electric had a major part to play in the extension of the 7 line. For the new station at 34th Street Javits Center, we installed and wired the communication systems, interactive customer information signs, platform lighting, lighting on the incline escalator, and art display lighting for the site P entrance on 34th Street and 11th Avenue.

Transit Renewal & Hydraulic Elevator Reconstruction

IDL Electric participated in the renewal and reconstruction of hydraulic elevators at Brooklyn Bridge Station, 51st Street Station, and 125th Street Station. This required work in both day and night shifts to ensure passenger safety during normal daytime hours. During the evening, we completed work that could not be safely accomplished during normal train schedules.

The reconstruction of the hydraulic elevators required swift and efficient work, as it was of critical importance to restore assisted access to the platforms of the station for New York’s senior and mobility challenged residents. It was truly a pleasure to restore elevator service, knowing the critical impact the access has on the quality of life for many New Yorkers.

2nd Avenue New Construction

IDL Electric was involved with the Second Avenue line construction during the last year of the projects. We were contracted to help ensure critical timeline completion for environmental controls, 15,000 volt cabling for light and power distribution, and communication between vital systems for operation of the line.

Our teams worked in shifts 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to make the long awaited opening date of Second Avenue a reality.
