    Join us on Wednesday,  April 24th for our Capital Program Webinar series with Alfonso Rodriguez , Project Director at The Portal - Transbay Joint Powers Authority. This presentation will encompass an overview of TJPA’s approach to partnering to advance and deliver The Portal Project (previously known as the Downtown Rail Extension). TJPA has benefitted from a six-agency partnership and agreement to advance the project through the FTA Capital Investment Grant New Starts Project Development Phase. With their recent favorable project rating (Medium High) they will soon enter the Engineering Phase of the program which involves pre-construction. With this transition, they are adjusting their agency partnership agreement to support the preconstruction and construction activities of the project. TJPA is also developing their RFP for their largest contract package - Civil and Tunnel construction using a Progressive Design Build (PDB) delivery approach. To maximize the benefits of PDB delivery, they will implement a meaningful partnering program with their selected PDB engineer/contractor along with their operator – Caltrain using in integrated Project Delivery Team approach.

    None of our projects are created or built on an island. Every project has 3rd party stakeholders including, permitting agencies, regulatory agencies, local municipalities, neighbors, and interested parties, all of whom can have a negative impact on the results of your project. All while the project team has little control over getting their support. Learn how Jeanne Kuttel, former Manager, Division of Engineering for the California Department of Water Resources, and her project team(s) have used partnering to help develop working relationships with 3rd parties so they support the success of their project(s). This is a powerful story that could make or break many projects that face requirements and resistance from many different 3rd parties.
