PortMiami Terminal V Bulkhead  | 2022 Project of the Year Award, ASCE Miami-Dade Branch

The design featured accommodations for sea-level rise. Construction includes coral relocation, extensive waterside improvements for vessel services, dredging of the existing waterway, a wharf extension, a new apron and bulkhead, installation of mooring/storm bollards and mooring dolphins, and stormwater drainage.
As the newest cruise terminal at PortMiami, Terminal V serves as the homeport for the new Virgin Voyages cruise line. At the center of the project is a new terminal building and an expansion to the existing cruise berth designed by BA.

• A new pier designed to accommodate for larger vessels within the existing site with the correct proportions to increase the length
• Design of new earth-filled combi-wall bulkhead structure anchored by a steel sheet pile (SSP) wall
• Mooring bollard foundation system and dolphin structure
• Maintenance and berth deepening dredging design
• Sustainable design with the Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserves (BBAP)

PortMiami Terminal V Bulkhead  | 2022 Project of the Year Award, ASCE Miami-Dade Branch

 

Bermello Ajamil & Partners (BA) is honored to receive the 2022 ASCE Project of The Year Award for our innovative and unique design of PortMiami’s Terminal V Bulkhead to expand an existing cruise berth for Virgin Voyages Cruise Line.

BA was responsible for the civil engineering design of Terminal V at PortMiami led by Senior Marine Engineer, Daniel Ramos. The project includes heavy civil infrastructure built in the marine environment. The engineering challenge was to redevelop an obsolete site, on the northwest corner of the port that cruise ships were unable to access due to the vessels length and depth, and create an operational space. BA was able to design an innovative solution that not only accommodated for the size of the cruise ship, but also for resiliency.

The design featured accommodations for sea-level rise. Construction includes coral relocation, extensive waterside improvements for vessel services, dredging of the existing waterway, a wharf extension, a new apron and bulkhead, installation of mooring/storm bollards and mooring dolphins, and stormwater drainage.

As the newest cruise terminal at PortMiami, Terminal V serves as the homeport for the new Virgin Voyages cruise line. At the center of the project is a new terminal building and an expansion to the existing cruise berth designed by BA.

• A new pier designed to accommodate for larger vessels within the
existing site with the correct proportions to increase the length
• Design of new earth-filled combi-wall bulkhead structure anchored by
a steel sheet pile (SSP) wall
• Mooring bollard foundation system and dolphin structure
• Maintenance and berth deepening dredging design
• Sustainable design with the Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserves (BBAP)
