South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority (SCBCTA), also known as “TransLink,” is responsible for the planning, financing, and operating of the public transportation system throughout Metro Vancouver and British Columbia. A primary component of the agency’s 10-Year Vision is the expansion of the Expo and Millennium SkyTrain lines. This significant rail infrastructure expansion includes constructing a new Operation and Maintenance Center (OMC) to meet projected increases in fleet size. The OMC 4 project will tie into the existing SkyTrain operational guideway and includes on-site and off-site civil work, elevated structures, and maintenance yards and facilities.
The $300M OMC 4 project is TransLink’s first Construction Manager/General Contractor (CMGC) procurement and generated a high level of interest from companies across North America. The first step of the pursuit required a Stage 1 Proposal which combined technical information and pre-qualifications. After shortlisting, the next step will require teams to submit a Stage 2 Additional Proposal and potentially participate in team interviews.

Mission Critical is excited to announce that Flatiron + PNR RailWorks was shortlisted for the TransLink SkyTrain OMC 4 CMGC. Mission Critical will again manage the team’s efforts as we move forward to the Stage 2 phase.
