Ports & Marine
Ports and marine are essential to the vitality of a prosperous regional and global economy.
Worldwide growth in trade is driving an increase in shipping and a need for larger, more efficient ports, marine terminals, and industrial structures is likewise on the rise. KCC’s maritime expertise spans strategy and early advisory to project development and management for all phases of construction.
Environmental, social, and economic factors are also integral in our planning to ensure the end result is safe, sustainable, and commercially viable. KCC has successfully completed many ports and marine projects throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic for clients including private container terminal operators and local governmental agencies. From minor maintenance to major expansion and new builds, KCC’s scope of completed projects has covered it all.
Paulsboro Marine Terminal - Stage 1 Rail & East Parcel Development
KCC was contracted by the Gloucester County Improvement Authority on its Stage 1 Rail & East Parcel Development to redevelop a former BP Refinery into a new terminal to be operated by Holt Logistics.
The success of the project relied on KCC’s ability to adhere to the rigid timeframe in a safe manner.
Contract PMT-013 is the first of two back-to-back, fixed-price contracts totaling $22.5 Million that KCC successfully performed at the new 175-Acre Marine Terminal on the Delaware River in Paulsboro, NJ. KCC worked directly for the Gloucester County Improvement Authority (GCIA), which is the contracting agent for the operator of the facility, the South Jersey Port Corporation.
Through a well-coordinated and organized approach, KCC was able to meet the aggressive deadlines established for both contracts. All work was completed on time and on budget and within an 18-month period. Most of the work was self-performed by KCC’s crews, with specialty subcontractors performing the drilling
Light Duty Straddle Carrier Shop Building
The Major Container Terminal (MCT) is located on 259 acres of property leased from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in Port Newark, NJ.
This new maintenance building required completion as quickly as possible as the existing building did not meet the height requirements to accommodate the new straddle carriers.
The facility handles more than 600,000 container units annually. The Major Container Terminal hired KCC to be the general contractor for the fast-track construction of MCT’s Light Duty Straddle Carrier Shop (LDSS), which was specifically designed for the maintenance and repair of MCT’s new “one over three” straddle carrier fleet. This new maintenance building required completion as quickly as possible as the existing building did not meet the height requirements needed to accommodate the new straddle carriers, which require a 55-foot-tall entrance door.

New Project in the works
Liberty State Park Bulkhead Repair
Back in the early 1900s, the 1,100-acre property where Liberty State Park is now located was heavily developed by the Central Railroad of New Jersey as a huge railroad terminus. Over the last 40 years, Liberty State Park has been transformed from an industrial site to a beautiful public park and scenic backdrop to the Statue of Liberty.
