LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA
Collectively, the Los Angeles and Long Beach Ports are the third largest ports in the world. The 300-plus acre Pier G is the largest port in Long Beach and home of “K” Line Shipping. The pier has undergone a vast reconstruction, filling in four container ship berths and merging two terminals into a single “mega” terminal. The terminal is designed as an integrated automated shipping container for computer controlled container management.
This complex required new construction of all facilities. TSKC developed all the architecture on the site - a 46,000-square-foot administration building and 30,000-square-foot operations building containing terminal operations, administration and union facilities. An 81,221-square-foot maintenance and repair building and 17,500-square-foot reefer wash building for servicing the vehicles on the property. Also, a 10,000-square-foot arrival building for assisting truck drivers. Strategically designed to meet the high volume of the port, views, infrastructure and program played a major role.
