Mott MacDonald’s North American company wins major role on the Transbay Terminal Project in San Francisco

Mott MacDonald’s North American company Hatch Mott MacDonald is primary subconsultant to the URS Corporation, selected by the Transbay Joint Powers Authority to provide programme management services for the new Transbay Terminal project in San Francisco. The US$2.0 billion project, which will be the largest transit-integrating, intermodal centre west of New York City, will replace the existing terminal and provide public access to all local bus and rail services.

The project includes the design, construction and operation of a new, six-level terminal building, new elevated bus viaducts leading to the Bay Bridge, a 1.5 mile subsurface extension of Caltrain commuter rail service and sub-surface station linking to the new terminal building, permanent bus terminal and storage facilities plus a temporary bus terminal and storage area for use during construction of the new building. The new terminal will also be linked to Bay Area Rapid Transit trains and MUNI Light Rail Transit Systems and accommodate not only buses and commuter trains but also future California high speed trains. The terminal is located within San Francisco’s Transbay redevelopment area, which when complete will include 3400 units of new housing, 1.2 million square feet of new office space, a hotel and retail outlets.

Hatch Mott MacDonald’s role involves programme managing development of the 1.5 mile underground tunnel rail extension, the new tunnel/surface station and the terminal underground station designed to accommodate Caltrain commuter rail trains and future high speed trains and other project facilities. The soft ground in the area will present particular challenges to the development of caverns for the tunnels and stations.

Programme Management services will start in August this year and completion of the entire scheme is expected by 2012.
