Port of Los Angeles Projects Honored

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Los Angeles recently earned a pair of Project Achievement Awards for outstanding construction management practices from the Southern California Chapter of the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA).

The port received the honors for the Berths 142-143 Backland Improvements project, which involved building 15 automated stacking blocks for the newly completed TraPac Container Terminal.

In another category, the Berth 214-220 redevelopment project at the YTI Container Terminal also won. That project included dredging, adding Alternative Maritime Power® connections and installing fire hydrants and removing utilities.

The awards were given at the CMAA Southern California Chapter Annual Awards Gala in downtown Los Angeles.
