Designing State of the Art Security for Midtown Crossing

Midtown 1

Midtown Crossing is a mixed-use development unlike any other in Omaha. Miller Electric contracted with the development group — composed of Weitz, ECI Development, and Morrissey Engineering — early in the process to design and build their security system. It was no small task.  

Keeping such an extensive system manageable, cost effective and future-proof would require major design and construction resources. 

In the big picture, every detail matters. 

From day one, Miller was up to the job. Designing and installing hundreds of access control points and cameras across seven buildings was just the beginning. Making all those pieces work together was another challenge altogether.  

When someone buzzes a door, the system records their info, alerts security personnel through the camera nexus, calls the elevator, and records the entry. Tying these seemingly simple actions together allows the system to be effectively administered by just two security officers — saving overhead and leaving more staff to patrol the grounds. 

The Miller difference doesn’t stop at cutting edge design and installation.  

Throughout the process Miller Electric worked closely with members of the development team, always looking to create the best commercial electrical product.
