Ghirardelli Awarded BART On-Call Construction Management Contract!
BY: KELLI RICHARDS, COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER | OCTOBER 30, 2020
During mid-October 2020, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) officially awarded Ghirardelli Associates a contract to continue to provide on-call construction management services. This contract win marks an incredible milestone for our company!
Ghirardelli was up against some of the biggest organizations in the provision of Program Management and Construction Management, to rail and transit operators, to gain this contract win. With the inclusion of this new on-call contract, Ghirardelli has become BART’s trusted advisor and extended arm for the safe on time and on budget delivery of many landmark projects, as well as capacity improvements required by the agency.
Ghirardelli has been providing construction management and engineering services to BART’s capital improvement program since 2009, leveraging experience on infrastructure projects across the state to shape the BART program. Under the new contract, Ghirardelli will provide construction management services, while minimizing the impact to revenue operations.
Our Associates worked seamlessly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, without missing a beat, to continuously deliver essential infrastructure and mobility improvements for the Bay Area Transportation Network. The contract win was due largely in part to the continuous support, dedication, and relationships our Associates have provided to our client BART, even throughout the unprecedented coronavirus outbreak.
A huge thank you goes to all of our Associates working with BART, as well as Ghirardelli’s administrative staff who provided support to execute a winning proposal. We couldn’t have done it without you!
