Environmental Construction Management at Middle Harbor Port of Long Beach

The Middle Harbor Terminal Redevelopment Program, which will combine two aging marine terminals into one modern and fully automated terminal, is one of the largest and most ambitious efforts ever undertaken by the Port of Long Beach. The nine-year, $1.2 billion program will: upgrade wharfs, water access and container handling areas; add an expanded on-dock rail yard, and; reduce port-related air emissions by half while doubling the current tenant's cargo handling capacity. The construction management team, in association with the Port of Long Beach, developed an Environmental Compliance Program as a critical component of the integrated construction management team to provide a framework from which to implement a programmatic approach to monitor, track, verify and report Program compliance. At the center of the program are the Environmental Compliance and Responsibility Matrix and quality assurance inspection and verification of compliance during construction. This paper will examine the role of the construction management team in developing and implementing an environmental compliance program in the context of the Port's Green Port Policy.
