Arcadis awarded $22m contract for major us port

ARCADIS, the international consultancy, design, engineering and management services company, announced that it has been awarded a five year, $22 million contract for management and environmental mitigation services for the Middle Harbor Redevelopment Program, a modernization of two aging shipping terminals.

The new terminal will be larger, add on-dock rail and shore power, and the buildings will be constructed to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) building standards. The new terminal will move twice the cargo while generating half the air pollution.

ARCADIS will provide full construction management services including constructability reviews,  scheduling, estimating, cost controls, construction oversight and inspection for Phase I of the Program.

“This is a major project for the Port of Long Beach, and solidifies ARCADIS’ position as a leading provider of management services. ARCADIS is proud to be involved in a project that will improve the environment and quality of life for residents for years to come by reducing air pollution by an estimated 50% and creating thousands of jobs for the Long Beach community,” stated Steve Blake, a member of the Executive Board of ARCADIS and CEO for its U.S. business. “Achieving the delicate balance between industrial advancements and the natural world is always at the forefront of our efforts.”
