Project Description

Expo Phase 1 is a Design/Build Light Rail project that includes 7 at grade and 3 aerial stations, bridges, a bike path, and a cut and cover grade separation at the University of Southern California. Finish electrical, systems, architectural, finishes and bridges at Farmdale Station in Los Angeles and Culver City Station in Culver City, associated building demolition, new security compound at Farmdale, and bike path, and parking lots adjacent to Culver Station were removed from Phase 1 Design/Build (D/B) contractor after bridge substructure installation and built Design/Bid/Build (D/B/B) by other contractorz under several separate D/B/B contracts, including added roadway restoration and improvements. 

Firm Role

DE provided project management, change administration/negotiation, project controls, estimating, claims avoidance, electrical inspection and systems oversight on the four D/B/B projects, which were the only Expo Phase 1 projects to be completed on time, despite partial work performed by the predecessor contractor and challenges resolving design and construction coordination in the field in order for follow on contractor to complete the work. Two of these projects were completed within 8% of the original contract value and the other two for under the initial contract value, and all four with no compensable time extensions and no claims, despite those significant challenges. DE’s systems staff performed systems oversight on the entire Expo Phase 1 alignment (D/B project).
