Cobb County Transportation Management Center

As part of Cobb County, Georgia's Advanced Transportation Management System  (ATMS) implementation, the County needed a new Transportation Management Center (TMC). The facility required space to house the necessary equipment, staff and support systems for ATMS, and the County requested that the building also be designed to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards.

In response, GS&P designed a three-level, 25,000-square-foot facility that not only achieved USGBC LEED Silver certification, it is 18% more efficient than current building codes require. Efficiencies were achieved in part through a combination of optimal site placement, strategic window and shading devices, use of Energy Star appliances and an upgraded efficient mechanical system. The building features an operations room where images from 70 closed-circuit television cameras are monitored, and the activity of more than 500 traffic signals in the County's ATMS are controlled.

The new TMC demonstrates Cobb County's commitment to providing state-of-the-art technology to enhance mobility and safety on its roadways, along with a focus on decreasing environmental impact through effective design choices.

"The design of this facility will not only enhance our ability to monitor our roadways and increase mobility and safety for the users, but through utilization of sustainable and energy efficient design elements, we will also decrease operational costs of the Department."

David Montanye, Director
Cobb County Department of Transportation
