Project Title 
Cargo Transit Shed (Bldg T-5) Relocation

Strategic Initiative
Port Initiative 1: Seaport Modernization

Moving the Cargo Transit Shed to its new location was a component of the modernization of the Port of Everett’s South Terminal Wharf to accommodate modern cargo. The 39,600-square foot shed had been used for log industry and terminal maintenance, loading and storage on the South Terminal Wharf, nearby Berth 1. The shed will now serve as covered storage as well as coverage for cargo unloading from rail. The restructured shed includes a cantilevered roof to extend over the rail cars for unloading cargo during inclement weather.

Desired Outcome
The Port achieved its goals with the relocation of the Cargo Transit Shed, including an increase in upland acreage, usable berths, water depth, dock strength, and crane capacity. We are also able to add future shore power, provide storage space to customers, and conduct environmental cleanup.

The project was put out to bid in December 2017 and approved for construction by the Port Commission in February 2018. The shed was moved off its foundations in May and over a two-day period it was moved across the terminal to the staging area, before its final move to its new foundations Aug. 16, 2018.

Shear wall foundations were poured early September and Emmert International removed cross-bracing and steel. In October, McClure will complete the structural upgrades, install the fire sprinkler system, complete the electrical connection and install the plumbing and hook up the Longshore shower and bathroom trailer.
