The Construction Authority completed a major milestone this month when the agency’s Board of Directors approved the shortlist of teams to compete to build the $1.5 billion, six-station Foothill Gold Line from Glendora to Montclair.
The four shortlisted teams were narrowed down from a field of seven that responded to the agency’s Request for Qualifications (RFQ). After review by four evaluation committees on the following criteria – related project experience, staffing and organization, legal qualifications, and financial qualifications – six of the seven teams were deemed qualified and the most qualified were recommended for the shortlist:
- AECOM | Stacy and Witbeck JV
- Herzog Rados Lane, a Joint Venture
- Kiewit-Parsons, a Joint Venture
- San Gabriel Valley Transit Partners (STP), a Joint Venture of Fluor and Ames
Board approval of the above shortlist concludes the first of two competitive steps in the procurement process to hire the design-build team for this project. Release of the Request for Proposals (RFP) is the second, and will occur in late-May. Only those teams shortlisted will receive the RFP and be competing to win the work. The contract award is anticipated in October.
