Project Description: Our firm was awarded this design/build task order contract for the close-out of Phase 1 of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project, known as the Silver Line. The project calls for the repair and/or replacement of deficient or incomplete work items from the original Silver Line construction contract. Task orders are issued in an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity format.
The program currently has more than 20 different task orders with another 10 to 15 packages expected. The tasks thus far have varied dramatically in size and scope. With some more than $1 million, and others as small as $1,800. Projects have included replacement of fiber optic work, installation of new Art Glass within the Metro stations of the Silver Line, as well as guardrail and Storm drain work for VDOT in and around the McLean/Tysons Metro area.
One task (pictured) was for the installation of 45-foot-tall stainless steel “Cone” sculpture at the Spring Hill Metro Station. The sculpture was trucked in Arizona, but the install had to wait for the roads to clear before finally being installed.
Other tasks already awarded include: guardrail and curb repairs, preparation of storm drains for video investigation, “Art in Transit” station visual improvements, utility relocation, surveys, fiber patch panels, sign replacement and removal, heat trace control boxes, and escalator pit sill modifications.
