Sound Transit

Operations and Maintenance Facility East

The Operations Maintenance Facility East (OMFE) is a design-build project by Sound Transit for the construction of a new light rail operations and maintenance facility in the City of Bellevue to support the region’s growing light rail fleet. By the year 2024, the light rail system is projected to more than double in size and the light rail fleet more than triple in vehicles. As part of this Link extension program, Elcon provided the design for a complete 3MW traction power substation (TPSS) feeding the Yard and a 500KW TPSS feeding the OCS inside the OMFE Shop building, and the OCS for the OMFE Yard & Shop facilities, including the design of raceway, structure, duct bank, OCS pole and supports. The design included plans, elevations, details and schedules fully executed in Revit.
