SAI provided full construction management, administration and inspections services on this Federal funded project, including a Resident Engineer (RE) and Assistant RE / Inspector. The work was done in compliance with all Federal Transportation Agency (FTA) and local agency requirements. This $5.0 million upgrade to the YCTD bus facility and administration offices involved multiple phases and constant coordination to maintain ongoing facility operations. The work on the 6.8 acre site involved constructing a new 7,100 sf administration building and a 1,700 sf dispatch center, remodeling an existing 3,100 sf administration building, remodeling and upgrading the 10,000 sf large maintenance building and the 6,000 sf small maintenance shop, installing a bus wash canopy, placing more than 2,000 cy of concrete for a new 2.5 acre parking area, constructing a large walking track, landscaping, relocating and installing several dry and wet utilities and tying into existing off-site utilities. The work required close coordination with the YCTD staff and the contracted bus provider, in order to not disrupt operations which involved more than 100 buses and vans serving Yolo County daily. The work also required coordination and cooperation with various off-site utilities and the City of Woodland. The RE and the ARE were put in responsible charge of all construction administration duties including: chairing all weekly and special meetings between the contractor, designer, YCTD, Veolia, and offsite utilizes; overseeing all inspection; coordinating all required documentation, recommending approval of all change orders and progress payments, monitoring and documenting all SWPPP compliance, provide expertise and make recommendations on all changes and ways to minimize impacts and accelerate work, perform other administrative duties.
