As managing partner of DTP, Fluor was responsible for financing, design, construction, testing and commissioning, and operations and maintenance of the 36-mile Eagle Commuter Rail network. This included arranging and managing the financing and directing the efforts for design-build and operations and maintenance.
Procedures and processes were enumerated in various plans to address traffic control, the maintenance of traffic and mitigation of the impact of construction on surrounding areas. The plans also covered the safety of workers, the travelling public, and nearby residents, as well as the protection of project assets.
According to the
Denver Business Journal, DTP created a "round table" with small and minority-owned business owners to help divide the work into contracts sized for small- and small disadvantaged-owned businesses. The businesses welcomed the consortium's proactive stance.
In 2015, the Eagle P3 Commuter Rail Project qualified for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Star Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). RTD's commuter rail maintenance facility also earned a LEED® Gold Certification in 2015.
Using the Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Maintain model, DTP has successfully operated the University of Colorado A Line and B Line since 2016 with an on-time performance rating of more than 97 percent. The University of Colorado A Line recently celebrated 1,000 days of service and doubled its capacity on the line as ridership continues to grow.
