Just Plug and Play: Prefab B.I.G. Booth at Temple Station Is Just The Ticket
New ticket kiosk design for Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) showcases custom details, and right-out-of-the-box convenience.
Los Angeles, CA – August 27, 2012 – When SEPTA wanted a “special” booth for their new Temple Station ticketing facility, they turned to B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc. (www.bigbooth.com). Many companies represent they build “special” booths, but only B.I.G. Enterprises met the rigorous standards required by SEPTA for this prefabricated booth—one that would meet strict construction and superior architectural standards, and be both bullet-resistant, and ADA compliant. These features and benefits were only available in a B.I.G. booth. Many have tried to copy; none have matched B.I.G. Enterprises’ reputation as the leader in the Pre-Fab Booth Industry.
Both SEPTA and Temple University support transit-oriented construction projects that are secured against threat, and which maintain attractive, stylized architectural elements. Thus, against a vibrant backdrop of public art, The SEPTA ticket booth combines frank utility with smart urban design, right at the foot of the university’s train platform.
Inspired by B.I.G.‘s popular Convincer model, The SEPTA booth sports a slightly arched standing seam roof, and custom colors applied using B.I.G’s proprietary paint system. The booth’s stainless steel floor is covered with hard-wearing industrial rubber tile, and a stainless steel ramp and landing means that the heavily-traveled access areas are both durable and ADA-compliant.
Construction is bullet-resistant throughout (including bullet-resistant pass through tray), contains attractive laminate interior shelving, and is fully wired for communications, interior and exterior lighting, HVAC, and all telephone and data services. All hardware carries a lifetime warranty. Each and every booth is made with the highest quality materials available, and B.I.G.’s customers have said that the manufacturing and engineering expertise is second to none.
Like all B.I.G. booths, The SEPTA is delivered fully prefabricated and ready for installation, so setting up The SEPTA was a snap; shipped in one piece, the unit was placed on its concrete pad, three wires were plugged in, and the booth was ready for use.
Though originally designed to serve as a ticketing booth, The SEPTA can be customized to serve any number of facilities or applications.
