AVA is task to provide Engineering and Landscape design support to retrofit BART’s Lafayette Station Site improvements. The objective is to meet ADA compliant parking and access requirements to the station, improve vehicular queuing in the intermodal zone, replace and relocate bus shelter, provide bus stops for County Connection buses and provide LED lighting in the parking lots. AVA will provide final engineering drawings by updating existing client’s CAD drawings, preparation of specifications, and Engineering cost estimates for competitive bidding. AVA was also tasked for Design Services During Construction (DSDC).
The Lafayette Station Site Improvement project is a holistic and integrated effort combining intermodal improvements with storm water management improvements. This project consists of a redesign to the northern lots of the intermodal configurations of the station to optimize traffic, lower congestion, and better align mode priorities, including satisfying the MS4 permit requirements by providing an effective storm water runoff capture and treatment through rain gardens and pervious pavers. These measures are known as low impact development (LID).
