Port Houston wanted to redevelop and modernize the Barbours Cut Container Terminal Complex to accommodate regional demand for containerized shipping. As part of the implementation of Port Authority’s Build-out Master Plan for the Barbours Cut Terminal, RPS performed planning, design, and construction phase services for the reconstruction of Container Yard 1 and conversion of the East End Yard from existing warehouse storage and break-bulk area into a container storage yard, a total of 43 acres.
The preliminary design included a study of the container row spacing, construction phasing, and a drainage study to check the revised trench drain configuration and grading plan. The project scope included site layout, grading, pavement design, striping, storm sewer drainage, trench drain and junction box design, water, sanitary sewer, high mast lighting, electrical and communications infrastructure, a new electrical substation, and construction sequencing.
Barbours Cut Terminal Container Yard 1 and East End Yard
Operations in an existing port container yard cannot be significantly disrupted during construction.
RPS worked closely with the Port to prepare a phasing plan to accommodate for 24-hour operations throughout the construction process.
