The JV—known as Foothill Transit Constructors—will deliver the project to the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority in late May, 3 months ahead of schedule.We are pleased to once again complete an outstanding project for the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority,” said Todd Wager, Parsons Group President. “The Gold Line Operations Campus is one of the only facilities of its kind designed and built to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standards.”Matt Scott, Kiewit Vice President and District Manager, added, “The Foothill Gold Line is a tremendous asset for the community, providing residents with a great alternative to congested freeways. It’s been an honor to work with the Authority on such an important project.”The 24-acre Gold Line Operations Campus will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, housing up to 84 light rail vehicles and nearly 200 employees. It will contain offices and training facilities for operations and maintenance staff, as well as accommodations for light rail vehicle inspection and maintenance services. The main shop building was designed to achieve 35% more water efficiency and 32.5% more optimized energy performance than a typical building of its kind.Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority CEO Habib F. Balian commented, “The Operations Campus provided us a unique challenge to reduce water and energy usage, without significantly impacting the project schedule and budget. With Parsons’ support and guidance, this facility is now a model for others around the county and the nation.”The Gold Line Operations Campus is part of a Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority contract in which the Kiewit–Parsons team designed and built 11.5 mi of double mainline track, 6 light rail stations, 10 traction power substations, communications systems, and an LRT train control/signals system, as well as a freight signals system for a new freight track on the eastern 3.8 mi of the project.
