Recently Masterplan secured approval from the City of Richardson to allow for the expansion of the existing Richardson Collins Electrical Substation.
The firm assisted its longtime client, Oncor Electric Delivery, and the developer, Digital Realty Trust, in allowing for the needed expansion.
The redevelopment of the technology park required robust electrical service. The additional source of electrical service provides enhanced reliability for the data center
Masterplan’s newest consultant, Mark Housewright, helped the public utility and developer coordinate efforts with various city departments. Housewright, a former Dallas City Councilman, also managed activities with various consulting engineers, including locally based Pacheco Koch, who served as the civil engineer.
This is the second large project assisting technology users that the firm accomplished in Richardson. Texas Instruments is preparing to open its landmark silicon chip making plant.
The chips are used in smart phone, computers, and industrial telecom equipment. TI hopes to employee up to 1,000 employees.
