WVF UPRR Settegast Intermodal II

Project Description

Name: WVF UPRR Settegast Intermodal II
Location: Houston, TX
Time-Period: September 21, 2015 – November 21, 2015
Cost: $1,154,529.81

Replacing 11,000 square feet of concrete pad with adjacent trains and 18-wheel tractor trailer trucks constantly moving freight in and out of the Settegast Intermodal Facility in Northeast Houston posed multiple challenges overcome by Webber and its project partners. An innovative consolidation of activities reduced work phases to a third from 21 to 14 which moved the project along quickly and safely while delivering a high quality finished paved facility.

In February 2015 excavators started work to remove the worn existing concrete storage pad and base material from the Union Pacific facility off Kirkpatrick Boulevard north of I-610. As the debris was hauled off, trucks came in with a new base course and by March mixers started delivering new concrete. Webber personnel kept in constant communication with the UPRR facility manager to coordinate project work with train and truck schedules and make sure crews safely maneuvered around low concrete barriers from tracks. Despite frequent rainfall, the $2.9 million project finished four months ahead of schedule in late July 2015 and without a single safety incident. Union Pacific Corp. was so pleased with the new base and 8-inch-deep non-reinforced concrete paving that Webber was recently awarded a follow up contract for 900 cubic yards of 8-inch and 16-inch concrete paving and 1,300 cubic yards of enhanced base at the UPRR facility. Work on the new $1.1 million contract started in early September 2015 and was complete 60 days later. Webber worked with UPRR officials to consolidate phasing on the new contract to finish by November, the start of the especially busy holiday season for the always bustling facility.

WUH Port of Galveston Cruise Terminal 2 Expansion

WUH Port of Galveston Cruise Terminal 2 Expansion

Project Description

Name: WUH Port of Galveston Cruise Terminal 2 Expansion
Location: WUH Port of Galveston Cruise Terminal 2 Expansion
Time-Period: November 2014 – June 2016
Cost: $11 Million

The Port worked closely with Royal Caribbean to identify upgrades needed to improve operations at Cruise Terminal No. 2 for both Voyager class vessels and any larger vessels in the future. Webber was awarded the contract to modify and expand the two-story terminal.

Work features 150,000 square feet of space and terminal seating capacity of over 2,000 passengers (from only 700). The westward expansion and modification of the Cruise Terminal 2 structure includes: converting the passenger check-in area to a baggage lay-down area and modifying the east end of the building to facilitate passenger and baggage screening activities with the ultimate goal of designing and building the expansion so that it will be incorporated into a new Terminal 3 at a later date. All existing services that were upgraded or added, including power, electrical, telecommunication, security, HVAC and mechanical, sewage, potable water as well as improvements to the adjacent uplands area were performed so as not to disrupt current terminal users.

During the project Webber held weekly meetings with the Port to identify work areas needed for action to keep on schedule and request Port authorization. In some cases Webber erected temporary screen walls to keep passengers clear of construction work areas and maintain aesthetics. In all cases Webber kept the construction areas clean of debris before a ship arrived. And even though the cruise schedules were well published, Webber continuously coordinated with the Port to ensure there were no last minute changes or misunderstandings.

The Port of Galveston, Texas’ Star Cruise Port serves as the primary point of embarkation for cruises to the Caribbean and Bahamas and each year handles over 1 million cruise passengers, making it the 4th busiest cruise port in the U.S.

WSE Port of Galveston Pier 16 Extension

Project Description

Name: WSE Port of Galveston Pier 16 Extension
Location: Galveston, TX
Time-Period: November 2012 – August 2014
Cost: $4.2 Million

This was a marine construction project to expand existing Pier 16 in Galveston Harbor to increase the capacity of the existing wharf for larger ships. Scope included expansion of an existing wharf through construction of a 600-foot-long, 40-foot-wide wharf extension. Major work items included about 30,000 linear feet of concrete piling, 1,200 cubic yards of pier beam concrete, 14 new face fenders and 24,000 square feet of wharf deck. Webber precast the deck panels for the main wharf deck in the laydown yard saving schedule time and reducing overall cost to the Port of Galveston. Webber also cast in place the actual wharf deck. The project was completed on time with zero incidents during 25,000 man-hours worked.

Project Description

Name: WRK Port of Galveston Pier 18 Wharf Extension
Location: Galveston, TX
Time-Period: September 2011 – May 2012
Cost: $5.2 Million

Pier 18 was $5.2 million dollar rehabilitation project for Port of Galveston. The project was being partially funded by a $10 million Disaster Assistance Grant Program from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA), which came to the aid of the port after Hurricane Ike.

The first phase of the construction project, which involved expanding the dock apron an additional 40 feet further into the channel and installing improved fendering and moorings was completed at a cost of $5.2 million.

These renovations enabled Del Monte to more efficiently discharge cargo from ships calling at the terminal. The Port of Galveston, Texas’ Star Cruise Port serves as the primary point of embarkation for cruises to the western Caribbean and the Bahamas. Four cruise lines, Carnival Cruise Lines, Disney Cruise Line, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean, sail from Texas’ only cruise port.
