Connecticut State Pier Infrastructure Improvement Project
Kiewit has been selected as Construction Manager for the Connecticut State Pier Infrastructure Improvement Project. In support of the objectives of the Connecticut Port Authority, we are committed to engaging the local community by providing access to information and opportunities.
The Connecticut Port Authority is planning improvements to transform the State Pier in New London into a state-of-the-art heavy-lift capable port facility that will accommodate a wide variety of cargoes, including wind turbine generator staging and assembly. The State Pier infrastructure improvements are designed to address identified facility shortcomings and enhance the State Pier facility and site conditions to accommodate future cargo needs and capitalize on opportunities for the State of Connecticut.
The Connecticut Port Authority has the following goals for the project:
- Build a professional and collaborative project team.
- Complete the Project in a safe manner.
- Design and construct the Project within the allowable budget.
- Maximize beneficial re-use of existing soils and sediments.
- Optimize schedule for delivery of the works.
- Use innovative design & construction practices.
- Maintain public trust and confidence in the Project.
Set-Aside Program – S/MBE Participation Requirements
The project has the following participation requirements in alignment with section 4a-60g(a)(3) of the Connecticut General Statutes, (the “set-aside program”):
- 25% of the total value of the construction or a portion of subcontracts shall be awarded to small contractors (SBEs)
- Of that portion to be set aside to small contractors, 25% must be reserved (minimum 6.25% of the total values) for awards to minority business enterprises (MBEs)
