Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Warm Springs Extension Small Business Services
As part of its commitment to small and local businesses, the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) engaged the services of several firms to provide support for small businesses working as subcontractors on the Warm Springs Extension project. This extension adds 5.4 miles of new track from the existing Fremont Station south to a new station in the Warm Springs District of the city of Fremont.
Our staff was responsible for training and assisting small business firms in construction-related activities, including assisting in training sessions as required for small businesses in areas of bid preparation, understanding contract legal requirement (including contract bonds, insurance and prevailing wages) and construction safety.
Cordoba Corporation provided direct support to a small business, a contractor responsible for portions of the plumbing system located within the station. Our team was directly involved in helping the contractor prepare shop drawings and as-builts and lending support from our in-house CADD department. Cordoba Corporation’s resources in support of this contractor were critical in helping the project continue to move forward.
