Federal Reserve Bank of New York
Torcon was selected by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to
provide construction management services for their new Operations
Center in East Rutherford, New York. EROC, as the facility is
known, is a highly sophisticated cash and data center that serves
as a national model for the Federal Reserve Bank system.
Torcon’s involvement with the project spanned design, construction and commissioning of the operations center. The 400,000 square-foot, three-story structure sits on 13 acres and is designed to house highly automated processing operations in a “fail-safe” and secure environment. Bank operations include cash and coin transactions in support of the region’s commercial banks. The cash storage area is highlighted by a 1 million cubic-foot vault serviced by a fully automated storage and retrieval system with automated guided vehicles.
Torcon also completed a 19,000 square-foot computer room addition that included 4,000 square feet of renovated space within the operating facility; and a cash/check renovation project at EROC.
Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland
Torcon continued its relationship with the Federal Reserve Banking
system in Cleveland, as part of the joint venture construction management
team that completed an addition and renovations program for the
Cleveland Fed. The project encompassed a six-story; 273,000 square-foot
operation center annex added adjacent to the existing 10-story headquarters.
The new operations center contains a fully automated cash vault
serviced by automated guided vehicles and a start-of-the-art security
The Cleveland Annex itself is connected and integrated with the existing headquarters building from the basement through the third level. The addition created space for expanded, fully automated cash operations systems including new cash and coin vaults with an automated storage and retrieval system, dedicated cash elevators and an automated material-handling system for payment and receipt verification.
Upon completion of the Annex, the 430,000 square foot historically registered headquarters building underwent a major renovation program. The project included upgrades to interior office, meeting and public spaces, and a complete restoration of the 60-year-old limestone exterior façade.
Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta
Torcon was part of a joint-venture construction management team
for the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta's new headquarters. The
building is home to more than 1,200 employees and meets the Bank’s
diverse functional needs by effectively integrating office, operations,
support, conference, and training spaces all under one roof. The
Bank’s educational center, featuring the Monetary Museum and
Visitors’ Center, is located off the building’s main
The 10-story, 750,000 square-foot facility sits on 11 acres in midtown Atlanta. The headquarters’ design uses proven technologies to facilitate efficient building operation and maintenance, and provides optimal facility security.
The lower levels of the building house the operations facilities including a five-story automated cash vault, cash and check processing and shared facilities, such as the conference/training center, cafeteria and dining rooms. Administration office space is within the remaining top seven floors.
The new home to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta also has a 500-car parking structure adjacent to the mid-rise operations/office facility. The building façade was composed of precast concrete and marble accents of traditional architectural conventions associated with public buildings to distinguish it from the surrounding commercial buildings located in midtown Atlanta.
