The $8.7M expansion of Old San Juan’s Pier 3 has been completed and the berth is now capable of handling the Quantum of the
Seas alongside. Bermello Ajamil & Partners designed the Pier 3 expansion in partnership with Integra, a San Juan architectural and
engineering firm.

The project took Pier 3 from 1,300 feet to 1,500 feet by virtue of new mooring dolphins. Upgraded fenders cushion the mass of the
world’s largest cruise ships. The greater capacity gives the potential to draw hundreds of thousands of additional passengers and crew who’s spending will have a positive impact on the economy. Being able to draw ships of the Quantum and Oasis classes make this pier expansion ‘crucial to boost tourism. BA was responsible for the design of the pier extension and mooring improvements.
