Design Contract Let For New Container Terminal In Port Of Los Angeles

Steps toward a new 100-acre container terminal at Berths 121- 126 in the Port of Los Angeles were taken recently as the Board of Harbor Commissioners approved a final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and agreements with consultants to design the facility. Previously, the board had entered into an agreement (Permit No. 441) with American President Lines, Ltd. (APL) to develop the new container facility.

The board awarded the design contract for the project to the combined team of Daniel, Mann, Johnson and Mendenhall (DMJM) as prime consultants, with Jordan / Casper / Woodman / Dobson (JCWD) and Williams Engineering as principal subconsultants.

This combination will best utilize the knowledge and experience of each firm.

The combined fee for the design of the wharf, backlands and buildings has been established at $1.4 million with an additional fee of not more than $100,000 if detailed design for a container crane transfer mechanism is also required. In addition, DMJM, as prime consultant, will receive a construction administration services fee of $389,600.

As proposed, the new terminal will be used exclusively by American President Lines, an existing tenant. The project will include modification of 600 lineal feet of existing wharf at Berth 126 plus construction of 1,360 lineal feet of new reinforced concrete wharf using the standard currently under development for the container terminal planned at the port's Berths 216-218. Completion of the entire terminal complex is expected in the summer of 1983.
