The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) Parking Structures are multi-agency Design/Build projects located at different sites at the BART Berryessa Station and BART Milpitas Station. The two individual projects each include the construction of a 1,200-space, 432,500 GSF structure constructed with cast-in-place, post-tensioned concrete beams and slabs. Columns were supported by 3- to 4-foot diameter concrete caissons that extended 20 feet or more into the ground. The Berryessa Parking Facility is a three-seven split level open air structure with certain removable façade elements to allow for future drive aisles. The Milpitas Parking Facility is a six-level open air structure with certain removable façade elements to allow for future pedestrian overcrossings.
Signet provided special inspection and material testing services of reinforcing steel, reinforced concrete, post-tension rebar and stressing, masonry, shotcrete, structural steel, and NDT testing (including out of state coordination in Maryland). We were initially awarded the contract with McCarthy for the VTA Berryessa; based on our high level of customer service, responsiveness, and technical capabilities, our contract was amended to include VTA Milpitas.
