Skanska and McLean JV selected for Norfolk International Terminal improvements by The Port of Virginia

The Skanska-led JV with its partner McLean Contracting Company announces its selection by The Port of Virginia to revitalize the Norfolk International Terminal North Wharf. The contract, valued at $85 million, marks a significant step in enhancing the terminal’s infrastructure.

The Port of Virginia is the fifth largest container port in the nation and the project is part of a $650 million master program for the North International Terminal to maximize its valuable waterside real estate and develop the infrastructure needed to accommodate modern cargo vessels, both in the near-and-long term.

The project scope encompasses upgrades to the Norfolk International Terminal North Wharf, which includes the demolition of existing marine wharf fenders and mooring hardware, followed by the installation of new fenders, mooring bollards, a steel sheet pile toe wall, wharf repairs, and mooring dolphins. Also included is the installation of a new 120’ gauge ship-to-shore crane rail.

“This project underscores the crucial improvements we are making to enhance the Norfolk International Terminal North Wharf and contribute to infrastructure progress at The Port of Virginia,” said Brook Brookshire, general manager and senior vice president of Skanska’s civil operations in the Southeast. “We remain committed to delivering value through our continued and enduring partnership with The Port of Virginia.”

The contracted project is scheduled to commence in March 2024, with an anticipated completion date set for January 2026. For the overall program, construction begins in March will be completed in two phases: phase I will be complete in fourth quarter 2025 with phase II wrapping-up in mid-2027.

On behalf of the Virginia Port Authority, Skanska has previously completed numerous projects including Norfolk International Terminals (NIT) North Wharf Expansion, Part 2, and Norfolk International Terminal South Renovation Phase I. In addition, Skanska is currently redeveloping approximately 72 acres of the 287-acre Portsmouth Marine Terminal for use as an offshore wind staging port.
