Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is a heavy rail system serving the bay area communities around San Francisco. The Silicon Valley Berryessa Extension (SVBX) Project is a current Valley Transit Authority’s design-build project which extends the BART system from Warm Springs Station in Fremont to Berryessa Station. Under this contract, Anil Verma Associates, Inc. (AVA) is planning and designing facilities within the BART station campus sites.
AVA is responsible for Architectural, Mechanical, Electrical, and Structural Engineering Services at the (2) BART station campus sites on the Silicon Valley Rapid Transit Berryessa Extension Project, which are the Berryessa and Milpitas Stations.
At the Berryessa Station campus, the work includes design-bid-build documents for the BART Police Zone Facility and Bus Transit Center canopies along with design-build bridging documents for the parking structure. The Police Zone Facility is a 5,000 sq. ft. facility serving numerous BART stations along the line. The canopies will provide shelter for patrons awaiting access to buses. The parking structure at Berryessa is an (8) level facility providing for 1,490 automobiles at the opening and is planned for a horizontal expansion to 2690 automobiles in the future as demand increases.
At the Milpitas Station, the work consists of design-build bridging documents for the parking structure. This parking structure will provide for 650 automobiles at the opening and is planned for a horizontal expansion to add another 1,300 automobiles in the future as the demand increases.
