VSCE provided the City of Modesto with Program Management and Construction Management services for its new Bus Storage, Operations, and Maintenance Facility project for the Modesto Area Express (MAX).  Our firm led the project during the project development and design phases, which concluded with complete design documents and successful advertisement the project for bid.  The scope of this effort included procurement and selection of the Project Architect as well as coordination with multiple City departments and the City Council on funding and operations issues.  The project received funding from multiple sources including the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) with VSCE responsible for coordinating project compliance with the FTA requirements.  The new facility required a permanent closure of a local street and a public hearing with the neighbors and businesses.modestoAt the completion of design, VSCE competed among a field of 21 Construction Management firms and ranked #1 to provide the Construction Management services. The new $12 million Bus Storage, Operations, and Maintenance Facility will service and accommodate 70 transit vehicles, featuring a new bus parking area, new bus maintenance building, fuel station, bus wash, and off-street employee parking. The project had no claims, and experienced less than 1% contract change orders, mostly initiated by the owner.
