Port of Los Angeles Dredging Project Wins Award

The Southern California Chapter of the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) has named the Port of Los Angeles recipient of two Project Achievement Awards for recently completed Port construction projects.

The Berths 142-143 Backland Improvements project at the Port won in the over $100 million transportation infrastructure category. The project was part of phased development of the recently completed new TraPac Container Terminal.

Winning in the $11-$50 million transportation infrastructure category was the Port’s Berth 214-220 redevelopment project at the YTI Container Terminal.

The project, among other things, included dredging and wharf improvement works. Port staff played a pivotal role in coordinating the phasing of project work to keep construction on schedule and costs down.

The mission of CMAA is to promote the construction management profession and the use of qualified construction managers on capital projects and programs. Its more than 15,000 members include individual practitioners, corporate members, public and private sector construction owners, along with academic and associate members.
