Houston Terminal LLC developed a new empty container terminal at Bayport, Houston, Texas, USA. The terminal is operated on a new secure drained RCC surfaced pavement. The subgrade comprises treated fill materials. Houston Terminal appointed Nigel Nixon and Partners, Inc. to act as their Owners Representative and designer for a design and build procurement contract. NNP also provided onsite supervision, a QA and QC role as well as to ensure that the clients requirements are met.
An onsite laboratory for material and soil testing was established and a rigorous testing plan was instigated for the varying subgrade conditions and the CBM mix design to verify that the pavement would remain serviceable through the operator’s tenure. The project completed in December 2020.
