The Pier G Demolition project consisted of a full demolition of an existing freight station building, an operations office building and a maintenance shop building including abatement of all hazardous materials. The purpose of this demolition was to accommodate space for several upcoming projects at the ITS Terminal to include a new main gate complex and several administrative buildings including a new technology building. The project also included extensive demolition of existing utilities through the open terminal such as water, storm drain gas and electrical in order to help rid the terminal of some of the massive amounts of abandoned utilities running thru the property from past demolitions.
Phased de-energization and removal of three existing electric substations, foundations and appurtenances was also required. Shimmick cut over existing loads from these substations to either the new substation or to substations installed from previous projects. Shimmick also installed a new electric substation to feed existing and new loads such as existing reefer receptacles and existing area lighting, as well as relocated an existing motor control center and control equipment for the fuel pumping units to accommodate space for a future expansion.
There were numerous new electrical and communication duct banks for existing loads as well as new loads to accommodate future projects and to tie together the new 66KV substation at the projects far West side all the way thru the terminal to the new shore-to ship substation on the projects far East side.
Shimmick completed the project on time, allowing the terminal to be ready for several new planned projects as well as created a more efficient pathway for terminal truck traffic and the deletion of old inefficient electrical substations.
