RT Metro Heavy Repair Facility
MarketOne Builders, Inc. was awarded the contract for the design and construction of a new 40,000 s.f. maintenance and repair facility for Sacramento Regional Transit's railcars. This contract was awarded by Regional Transit based on prequalification and price criteria. MarketOne Builders, Inc. developed a team of design professionals including Silva Stowell Architects, Buehler & Buehler Structural Engineers, Morton-Pitalo Civil Engineers and a cast of supporting design/build subcontractors to aggressively challenge the 30% 'bridging' documents issued by Regional Transit. This effort, coupled with a month-long pricing exercise, allowed MarketOne Builders, Inc. to provide a complete estimate for Regional Transit's consideration and eventual award. This type of public works contract fairs well for MarketOne Builders, Inc. due to our ability to rally a select team's creativity and cost competitiveness without having to sacrifice quality and timeliness for 'low bid'.
