Swinerton Builders recently completed the new toll operations building at the Bay Bridge for Caltrans’ Bay Area Toll Authority.
The 22,000-sq-ft, steel-framed, two-story building is comprised of concrete on metal deck with pile foundations. The exterior features white metal panels and glass curtain wall, with a glass hand-railed walkway to the main entrance.
The new toll operations building will continue to provide Caltrans administration, toll collection, and electronic monitoring of the toll operations, each of which required specially designed and constructed fire suppression, communication, and security systems. Demolition of the existing building and creation of a parking lot with landscaping is yet to come.
Swinerton said it worked collaboratively with HNTB Architecture and construction manager Bay Area Management Consultants (BAMC) to successfully complete the project. The building was designed and built to LEED silver standards.
