San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART), Oakland, CA
BART Balboa Park Station Expansion

Acumen was responsible for developing a Phasing Plan that met the requirement of maintaining the full, unimpeded operation of the station and pedestrian traffic patterns while allowing contractor access to the work areas in an organized manner. The firm provided a construction cost estimate that addressed all aspects of the expansion project including the improved pedestrian traffic flow components, various room additions, brick paver installation, and related work. Acumen staff also assisted the design team by compiling the contract specifications. The scope of work for this project included the demolition of existing stairways to provide for expansion and the addition of new upgraded stairways, an escalator, and a fare gate array to accommodate pedestrian circulation during peak use periods.
