Ports and marine are essential to the vitality of a prosperous regional and global economy.
Worldwide growth in trade is driving an increase in shipping and a need for larger, more efficient ports, marine terminals, and industrial structures is likewise on the rise. KCC’s maritime expertise spans strategy and early advisory to project development and management for all phases of construction. Environmental, social, and economic factors are also integral in our planning to ensure the end result is safe, sustainable, and commercially viable. KCC has successfully completed many ports and marine projects throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic for clients including private container terminal operators and local governmental agencies. From minor maintenance to major expansion and new builds, KCC’s scope of completed projects has covered it all.
The success of the project relied on KCC’s ability to adhere to the rigid timeframe in a safe manner
KCC was contracted by the Gloucester County Improvement Authority on its Stage 1 Rail & East Parcel Development to redevelop a former BP Refinery into a new terminal to be operated by Holt Logistics.
KCC's extensive resources and expertise, coupled with a Russian Steel tenant's ability to bring in ships with materials, we were about to fast-track this rigorous and demanding schedule. The majority of contract work was self-performed, with only the actual rail installation being subcontracted to a local railroad firm. The success of the project relied on KCC’s ability to adhere to the rigid timeframe in a safe manner while addressing all aspects of the diverse project.
This new maintenance building required completion as quickly as possible as the existing building did not meet the height requirements to accommodate the new straddle carriers
The facility handles more than 600,000 container units annually. The Major Container Terminal hired KCC to be the general contractor for the fast-track construction of MCT’s Light Duty Straddle Carrier Shop (LDSS), which was specifically designed for the maintenance and repair of MCT’s new “one over three” straddle carrier fleet. This new maintenance building required completion as quickly as possible as the existing building did not meet the height requirements needed to accommodate the new straddle carriers, which require a 55-foot-tall entrance door.
