The Low Battery Project, [Eastern Branch] City of Charleston, owner. Lead Design Firm: Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson, INC (JMT) and Construction Firm: Gulf Steam Construction. This project, the rebuilding of an iconic 100+ year old iconic seawall, is a showcase of collaboration, innovation and public stewardship. The project Phase 1 was completed on time and within budget, allowing effective use of taxpayer dollars. This was accomplished by reusing as much of the substructure as possible, innovative application of materials and tools (such as micropiles) to strengthen the wall, and effective interaction with nearby residents and city officials to minimize any delays as well as to gain necessary support.
The Hugh K. Leatherman Terminal Phase 1 Construction Project [Eastern Branch] South Carolina Ports Authority and HDR Construction. This $986M Project started August 27, 2018 and completed ahead of schedule and under budget on March 15, 2021, and is already in use. This state-of-the-art terminal strengthens SC Ports/big-ship capabilities and provides much needed capacity to the East Coast. Its 1,400-foot berth can handle a 20,000-TEU vessel. Five electric, Ship-to-shore cranes with 169 feet of lift height and 228 feet of outreach – some of the tallest on the East Coast - stand ready to move the cargo.
