Located on the mainland shore of San Francisco Bay, the Port of Oakland is world-class international cargo transportation and distribution hub, and the fourth busiest container port in the United States. For more than 10 years, TYLI has provided civil engineering services in support of the Port of Oakland’s Maritime operations and development projects.

Project Highlights:

  • Developed accurate valuation of renovations for tenant and Port to use in negotiations
  • Recommended videotaping to obtain accurate information on storm and sanitary sewer infrastructure
  • Introduced cost savings with alternative grading and paving options
  • Received the 2009 Caltrans Excellence in Transportation Award for Intermodal Transportation

For the APL Yard and Gate Redevelopment at Middle Harbor Terminal (Berths 60-63), TYLI prepared site layout and demolition plans and grading and drainage plans and profiles. TYLI also provided design coordination with the paving and geotechnical subconsultants and construction support. Berth 60-63 is an existing 80-acre container terminal for three container ship berths with paved container laydown area and all associated infrastructure. The project included grading and drainage design for rubber tired gantries (RTG) and top-pick vehicles, as well as for chassis-trailer operations. Facilities include inbound/outbound gate facility, radiation portal monitor system and customs border patrol facility, service buildings, yard equipment maintenance pads, container washing facility, passenger and yard vehicle parking, rubber-tired gantries, reefer racks and bunkers, yard lighting, utilities, and drainage.

The Berth 57/59 Container Yard and Gate redevelopment involved site design of a 140-acre parcel for three container ship berths with paved container laydown area and all associated infrastructure. The project included placement of dredging spoils and engineered fill and paving for rubber tired gantries (RTG) and top-pick vehicles, as well as for chassis-trailer operations. Facilities include inbound/outbound gate facility, service buildings, yard equipment maintenance pads, container washing facility, passenger and yard vehicle parking, rubber-tired gantries, reefer racks and bunkers, yard lighting, utilities, and drainage.

TYLI prepared the site layout and demolition plans and the grading and drainage plans and profiles. TYLI coordinated with the electrical and mechanical designers on the depth and clearance requirements for the associated utilities. Utilities include high and low voltage electrical conduits, data and telecommunication, gas, sewer, fire protection, and domestic water.
