Working with Jacobs Engineering, Saam was responsible for architectural design during the designer bid phase of the MBTA GLX Green Line Extension project. Saam team members designed seven center island platform transit stations, as well as associated walkways and accessible connections. The team worked closely with Jacobs and created 3D models and renderings to clearly convey design concepts.

Saam’s understanding of MBTA’s design standards and procedures was an important factor allowing for the comprehensive design of stations and associated spaces and elements, such as platform shelters and seating areas, bathrooms, customer assistance areas (CAAs), mechanical and communications room, police reporting station, station signage and vertical transportation elements, including ramps, stairs, and elevators.
