The New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal is a multi-purpose deepwater port facility designed to handle bulk container shipping and large specialty marine cargo.  The location and capabilities of this port facility have also led to its selection to support the construction, assembly, and deployment of offshore wind projects.  With a uniform loading capacity of 4,100 psf, crane load capacity of 20,485 psf, and a bulkhead that will support a 1,350 metric ton crane lifting a 500 metric ton load, it was designed to be the most versatile heavy lift cargo facility in the nation.

Manafort Precision was selected to perform all structural concrete work associated with this new Port Facility including the pile caps, wharf slab, and bulkhead totaling 6,000 cubic yards of concrete.  The project logistics, including cast-in-place concrete work over tidal ocean waters, required extensive planning and coordination.  Rigid specifications to ensure strength, durability, and long life in a harsh environment required strict quality control.  Manafort Precision met all of these challenges, successfully completing the project in a tight schedule.
