DGS Wins Project of the Year Award
The Department of General Services announced today that the Inland Empire Transportation Management Center project in Fontana has been honored by the California Transportation Foundation with a Project of the Year Award in the category of Operational Efficiency Program. The award recognizes programs that improve transportation operations through technological or management solutions.
The project was managed by the DGS Real Estate Services Division for Caltrans District 8 and Inland Division CHP along with construction partners Aztec Engineering; RC Construction; AECOM Inc.; and Vanir Construction Management Inc.
The transportation management center processes traffic data from Riverside and San Bernardino Counties and was built to meet state building code requirements as an “essential services facility” able to remain operational during a natural disaster.
The new facility was designed to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council due to its energy efficiency, water conservation, and environmentally sensitive features.
