In 1992, BA made a conscious decision to create a Public Involvement Department in recognition that outreaching and involving the public was integral part of any successful project. BA’s multi-disciplinary background and professional experience with infrastructure projects in planning, project development, design, and finally construction, provides us with the framework to provide public outreach to meet the goals and objectives and operational needs of our public and private clients.



Tere Garcia has more than 25 years experience in the fields of planning, public participation, governmental and media relations. Eighteen of those years have been spent specifically in the public involvement field concentrating on transportation and infrastructure projects. BA has provided public involvement services to governmental agencies such as the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX), the Florida Department of Transportation, Miami-Dade Transit Agency and Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department.

Senior VP, Public Involvement
