The Unalaska Marine Center (UMC) Dock Positions III and IV upgrades project finished construction under budget and on schedule. Turnagain Marine Construction (TMC) began work in June 2016; the docks have been fully operational since January 2019.
PND’s role in this $35 million update included project planning, geotechnical, design, permitting, bidding administration, and construction inspection and management services.
All in all, the project included 230 truckloads of structural concrete, 3,700 tons of structural steel, and 5,555 truckloads of gravel fill. It also added 300 runway feet of crane rail, with the ability to add 400 additional in the future. It upgraded port facility elements such as its surface drainage, high-mast lighting, sanitary sewer, refrigerator container plug-ins, water, and heavy-duty fenders and mooring bollards.
