Public Transit and Transportation Projects
TAG has been involved with Transit and Transportation projects from the firm’s inception. These project types are intensely focused on serving the public. Providing a positive experience for the customer is essential. Whether it relates to a transit system, airport or highway system, safety, security, timely service, convenience and accessibility to the public are critical to daily operations. Architecture is an integral part in accomplishing our clients’ project goals. TAG’s projects vary from a quant historic renovation of a bridge tender’s house on a swing span bridge to the restoration of and 1850’s brick train tunnel. Facilities for Department of Transportation include welcome centers and truck weigh stations on the interstate system and regional bus facilities. Transit stations on heavy rail systems and people mover maintenance facility at the world’s busiest airport are examples of our rail experience. TAG has teamed with nationally known airport design teams to renovate and expand concourses and designed pedestrian and transit connector tunnels. Support facilities such train and bus control center and maintenance facilities are in TAG’s portfolio as well.
As noted in our firm profile, not all experience results in a building project for our clients. TAG has provided services from conditions assessment for facilities to surveys of artwork in transit system stations. Most significant however has been our serving for the past five years on the PMOC team for the Federal Transit Administration. TAG participated in the risk assessment program in New York City for the rebuild of the transit system and “ground zero” site in lower Manhattan, a project of monumental significance to the world, and an indescribable and humbling honor for us.
