FirstEnergy Corp., Regional Dispatch Operations
Akron, Ohio

This FirstEnergy project is a 30,000 square foot building addition designed to house the Regional Dispatch Operations facility. The main area of this facility is accessible only to authorized personnel through multiple security measures coordinated through a security consultant. The facility is equipped with back-up power systems to allow it to function through a disaster or power outage conditions. The south wall of the main dispatch room has three 13 foot computer video walls that provide a common image of the power grids and weather conditions for all dispatchers which allow them to coordinate a disaster recovery for all Penn Power and Ohio Edison companies. The conference and training room featured a mounted screen and projector as well as a camera facing the audience used for distance learning and conferencing.

Four Points Architectural worked with FirstEnergy to master plan this facility in multiple locations and configurations before the final design was completed.
