SNC-Lavalin Group member Atkins has been selected by the Federal Transit Administration to continue its role as project management oversight contractor for the Silicon Valley Extension project, which extends the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit system to the City of Santa Clara in California. The 16-mile Silicon Valley Extension project, which is being built by the Santa Clara Valley Transit Authority and will be operated by BART, is the largest public infrastructure project ever constructed in Santa Clara County.

Phase I, which began construction in 2012 and plans to begin service later this year, extends the BART system 10-miles from the existing Warm Springs Station in Fremont County to Berryessa Station in Santa Clara County, and includes Milpitas Station/Transit Center in the City of Milpitas and the Berryessa Station/Transit Center in northern San Jose. Phase II is a six-mile extension from the Berryessa Station through downtown San Jose to Santa Clara Station in the City of Santa Clara, and includes a five-mile tunnel, three underground stations and one ground-level station.

As PMOC, Atkins will monitor and evaluate the SCVTA’s management and technical capability to successfully plan and execute the project. Services include reviews of project scope, schedules, cost estimates and reporting, implementation plan document reviews, site visits, preparation of trip, periodic and spot reports, attendance at quarterly progress meetings, tracking environmental mitigation measures, conducting and observing risk workshops and monitoring risk registers and mitigation measures, and other oversight services. Atkins has served as PMOC for Phase I since 2014.

Atkins has served as a prime contractor on multiple PMOC assignments over the last decade, including:
Portland Streetcar Loop, Oregon
Tucson “Sun Link” Modern Streetcar System, Arizona
BART Silicon Valley Berryessa Extension Phase I, California (ongoing)
St Louis Loop Trolley, Missouri
