Bicentennial Transit and Operations Center

JMT (formerly ECM) provided construction management services for a new transit and operations center.


El Paso, TX


Sun Metro Transit Dept., City of El Paso

Sun Metro has had a long and successful relationship with JMT (formerly ECM International). This partnership continued with the development of Sun Metro’s headquarters, the Bicentennial Council Transit and Operations Center.

This 35.5-acre campus is composed of four separate buildings for operations, maintenance, fueling, and bus wash. Through an innovative public-private partnership, and because of a strategic location near natural gas pipelines, liquid natural gas is piped directly into the facility’s fueling stations. The facility features administrative offices, training rooms, a call center, employee break rooms, workout areas, lockers and showers, coach operator and maintenance computer stations. Other areas include dispatch, fixed-route and rapid transit system operations, bus maintenance, fueling stations, and large canopied bus parking spots for the 200+ vehicle Sun Metro fleet.

JMT’s vital role as construction manager included coordination between stakeholders, design and construction teams, constructability reviews, construction oversight, budget and schedule monitoring, change orders, and procurement and installation of owner-provided equipment.
