Anaheim Bus Base

Client Background

The Orange County Transportation Authority is the transportation planning commission for Orange County. OCTA is responsible for funding and implementing transit and capital projects for the transportation system for the travel needs, including freeway improvements, express lane management, bus and rail transit operation, and commuter rail oversight.

Project Overview

This federally-funded facility modification project at Anaheim bus base maintenance building consisted of the replacement of six roof-top gas-fired makeup air units. The project also included related gas piping, electrical work, roof demolition and restoration, roof curb work, structural anchorage and bracing modifications, and complete mobilization and demobilization.

Our Role

JOA Group provided construction management support.  The services included evaluating change order requests, preparing independent cost estimates, and preparing change order documentation for OCTA processing. In addition, JOA Group performed labor compliance for this project.

Project Challenges

The main challenge for this project was to keep the Anaheim bus base fully operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during construction. As construction manager, JOA Group conducted periodic construction site visits to evaluate construction progress. Planning and close coordination with contractor and OCTA minimized disruptions to existing operations.
