Port of LA Wins CMAA Award for Dredging Project
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 completed port construction projects.
Winning in the $11 to $50 million transportation infrastructure category was the Port’s Berth 214-220 redevelopment project at the YTI Container Terminal. The project involved dredging, wharf improvements like landside rail cranes, Alternative Maritime Power® connections and other electrical work, as well as backland improvements, fire hydrant installations and utility removals. Port staff played a pivotal role in coordinating the phasing of project work to keep construction on schedule and costs down.
The Berths 142-143 Backland Improvements project at the port won in the more than $100 million transportation infrastructure category. The renovations involved construction of 15 automated stacking blocks and related infrastructure.
The CMAA hosts awards each year to recognize outstanding achievements in the practice of construction management. The mission of CMAA is to promote the construction management profession and the use of qualified construction managers on capital projects and programs.
