BART: Central Warehouse Facility & Main Shop | Hayward, CA
The Central Warehouse Facility is a one-story, 126,000-square-feet warehouse with a small area inside the building devoted to two floors of administrative offices and support spaces located at the BART Hayward Maintenance Complex site. The project, which also included construction of a Main Shop for repair work, demonstrates the TSE team’s capabilities to provide engineering design services to BART utilizing a diverse team of professionals participating in the project development and design services.
Along with the implementation of a new Transportation Management Center (TMC), many of the existing communication systems in the current Control Center and existing Metro subway are being upgraded or replaced. The SFMTA Metro Subway includes nine underground passenger stations. TSE is responsible for design deliverables for the replacement systems which include: communications systems, construction management/support services. In addition, TSE prepared an inventory of existing systems and a Conceptual Engineering Report (CER) which emphasized minimal disruption to current operations. The CER was reviewed and signed off by the various Operations and Maintenance Departments as well as SFMTA Management to indicate concurrence with design concepts and scope.
BART–Transbay Tube Retrofit Project | San Francisco, CA
(TSE) is assisting in the retrofiting of the Transbay Tube (TBT) as part of BART’s Earthquake Safety Program.

The primary work involves the installation of internal lining of BART Transbay Tube M1 and M2 bores and the Galleries in several portions of the Transbay Tube.
LACMTA: Gold Line - Foothill Extension | Los Angeles, CA
This 11.5-mile project consists of various elements was designed by TSE Engineers and includes track circuits, cab signaling (with wayside signaling at eight interlockings) and interfaces to the M&O Yard and Rail Operations Control Center (ROC). Project included a new pocket track and an interlocking adjacent to the Sierra Madre Villa starting point for turn-backs. TSE’s scope also featured communications, signaling, and yard control systems for a new Maintenance and Operations facility building with a signalized yard located midway along the line.
