Port of Long Beach
KPFF was retained by the Port of Long Beach to manage, plan, and design redevelopment of the former Long Beach Naval Complex for use as a new marine terminal. The Port and their tenant agreed to a very ambitious schedule for the redevelopment of the site. Consequently, KPFF was tasked with developing a phasing program for design and construction that allowed demolition, earthwork, and generic site improvements to proceed while planning and design of the tenant-related improvements was accomplished. A program was developed that included 19 separate construction contracts totaling over $450 million. This project received numerous awards including the Honor Award, 2005 Engineering Excellence Awards, American Council of Engineering Companies; Golden State Award, 2005 Engineering Excellence Awards, Consulting Engineers and Land Surveyors of California (CELSOC); Award of Excellence, 2004 Facilities Engineering Awards, American Association of Port Authorities and the Cornerstone Excellence Awards of 2002, Southern California Ready Mix Concrete Association.
