American Construction Company (ACC) won the contract to perform work for the Port of Seattle at Terminal 46 near the Seattle Waterfront in Seattle, Washington. To begin, ACC demolished the waterside face of the pier. ACC then reconstructed 2,000 feet of the apron section which strengthened the pier to accommodate the new 100 foot Gauge Container Cranes. In addition to the gage crane rails, ACC drove 350 each of 180 foot long pre-stressed concrete piling which were logistically challenging to transport and required the expertise of the ACC crew to install. Next, 5,700 cubic yards of cast-in-place concrete caps and bull rails were placed, and pre-stressed and pre-cast deck panels were installed. For the landside crane rail, ACC installed 225 each 110' long steel H piles and 2,700 cubic yards of cast-in-place concrete pile cap.

A difficult aspect of the project was that the site was an active container terminal that required constant communication and coordination as to not impede the normal daily operations. ACC maintained a great and positive relationship with the Port of Seattle and was able to meet all deadlines and overcome all obstacles throughout this 19 month long project.
