SCACLI recently completed another airport construction project – the L.F Wade International Airport Redevelopment Project (the “L.F Wade Project”). The award winning $267 million job began in March 2017 and was a multiyear project. The L.F Wade Project included the construction of the new 288,000 sqft terminal, construction of additional apron space, light systems installations for the apron, modifying the taxiway, installing new aircraft hydrant refueling systems, and de-commissioning a majority of the current terminal.
SCACLI, an industry leader in International Projects Freight Forwarding was nominated to manage and oversee all the transportation requirements. Maria Misurka, COO and Partner explains, “Moving cargo to Bermuda had its unique challenges and as the Project Manager, the Bermuda team and I found solutions with our many partnerships and contacts around the world. SCACLI’s role consisted of project management, marshalling, and cargo movements from origins such as USA, Canada, UK, Spain, China, and the Netherlands.
Large scale construction jobs such as the L.F Wade Project require expertise and customized planning. SCACLI worked closely with all parties by organizing chartered vessels, barge movements, and mobilization of heavy equipment. Additionally, SCACLI arranged ocean container shipping, consolidations, air cargo expedite, and air charter shipping on behalf of our customers and their subcontractors. This work was completed not only for the new terminal, but also for the runway, hangars, offices, boarding bridges, aircraft refueling systems, HVAC, and security systems.
SCACLI customized plans and managed every PO from the moment it was issued until the cargo arrived customs-cleared delivered to site. The requirement was to ship everything required to build this airport, from small tools, parts and dangerous goods to heavy construction machinery, vehicles, cranes, the asphalt plant, backhoes, bulldozers, graders and the list goes on.
Misurka states “SCACLI is proud to have been trusted to manage the shipping for the construction of this multi award winning airport L.F Wade Project which is now open and has transformed the airport experience for visitors to this “Bermudaful” island.
