ASCE Regional Award for Port of Long Beach
Accolades continue to roll in for the Middle Harbor Redevelopment at Port of Long Beach (POLB).
The redevelopment program, which aims to modernize two shipping terminals, won the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) California Regional Award for Outstanding Construction Project of the Year for the phase one of wharf construction, designed by Moffatt & Nichol.
The work included building a larger and stronger wharf with associated utilities to accommodate the world’s most advanced quay cranes and modern automated equipment handling.
Moffatt & Nichol has been providing overall program management and master planning as well as specific project design for the 325-acre site under contract to the Port of Long Beach.
Services have included concept through final planning, a series of simulation studies, wharf and container yard design and construction services.
Project team members will officially accept the ASCE Regional 9 Award during a banquet event at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento in Sacramento, California on March 18, 2016.
