Oxnard, CA

Gold Coast Transit District

We provided complete electrical infrastructure and systems throughout a 14-acre public transportation site.

Value Delivered

Throughout Gold Coast Transit District’s 14-acre relocation site, Dynalectric L.A. provided ground-up electrical infrastructure and systems installation for four new buildings: an administration operations center, maintenance building, cleaning and sanitation facility, and compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station.

To satisfy the client’s unique requirements, we designed and custom-built an exterior cable trench system for utility feed to the project, and seismic-engineered the steel substructure for a self-standing electrical room with no wall attachments.

We were able to meet all this project’s challenges, including installing a gas detection system in National Electrical Code Class 1, Division 1 and 2 hazardous locations, and performing all work under the Buy America Act which required all components to be made in America.
