Designing Projects To Support Georgia’s Asset – The Port
Hussey Gay Bell has played a major role in the planning, design and permitting of projects for Georgia Ports Authority for nearly 50 years at the Garden City, Colonel’s Island and Ocean Terminals. Projects have ranged from civil/site development for port facilities, rubber tire gantry crane design, architectural design of vertical facilities, utilities, surveys, main gate and access road design, container berth upgrade projects, new development and renovation of warehouses and more.
The Garden City Terminal is the fourth-busiest container port in the U.S. and provides access to 44% of U.S. consumers in 2-3 days. At 1,200 acres, it’s North America’s busiest single-terminal container facility in which Hussey Gay Bell has completed 70+ major projects to date. Recent design projects include a new, two-story Rail Operations Building and a new, 170,000 SF Maintenance & Operations Facility.
Just to the east of the Garden City Terminal is the Ocean Terminal – a dedicated breakbulk and RoRo facility – that processes a wide variety of cargo. The 200.4-acre facility handles forest and solid wood products, steel, automobiles, farm equipment and heavy-lift cargoes. Hussey Gay Bell has completed three notable projects for this facility.
Located in Brunswick, GA, Colonel’s Island Terminal ranks not only among the nation’s largest auto facilities, but it’s also one of the country’s most environmentally-conscious. As a dedicated RoRo facility, the terminal is the third busiest port in the U.S. for total RoRo cargo and second busiest for RoRo imports. Hussey Gay Bell has completed 15+ projects at this facility.
