Lead Construction Engineer Ali Ataei was recently acknowledged for his outstanding work at a key west coast utility customer for his assistance on the first phase of relocating Caltrain’s electric facilities. The 3-year project for San Francisco’s 51-mile commuter rail system supports the city’s migration from diesel commuter trains to electric, providing greener, faster and more reliable service.
Our customer applauded Ali for his tremendous contribution, critical thinking, and reliable follow-through. In many instances, the Caltrain relocation construction took place on weekends from 11pm-5am, and Ali was on site Friday and Saturday evenings often until well after midnight to ensure the crews were organized, focused and prepared.
Additionally, Ali worked closely and effectively with Distribution Operations in coordinating and implementing four to eight major clearances every weekend. Where one major project generally has one or two clearances in its 6-month life, Ali performed at least twice that every week.
Ali’s hard work and dedication to the utility and this project have contributed to work completed without procedural error and zero safety incidents. He’s an overall a great team member.
The electrified trains are expected to start running in 2022 from San Francisco to San Jose.
