The Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority has been recognized for the successful completion of the Foothill Gold Line light from Pasadena to Azusa with a Project Achievement Award for design-build projects worth more than $100 million by the Construction Management Association of America's Southern California Chapter. The award follows the on-time, on-budget completion of the nearly $1 billion, 11.5-mile, six-station light rail extension last September.
Construction Authority Board Chairman Doug Tessitor said, "I believe the Construction Authority's design-build process should be a model for other agencies. We were able to manage the needs of three design-build teams, five different cities, and many other third-party agencies using design-build because the process allows for flexibility and is able to adjust quickly to new information and constituents' needs."
