Smart engineering fortifies crane maintenance operations
The TraPac’s Terminal at the Port of Los Angeles is located at Berth 142. The terminal was in development and required a Crane Maintenance Building to support current and future crane operations. The Port had already produced the architectural design development package and requested that architectural and engineering teams take the project through the design and construction phases including mechanical, electrical, plumbing and telecommunication engineering services. The completed building will have office and shop areas, spreader repair bays, parts room, machine shop and restrooms.
As part of the project, our team provided cooling and heating load calculations, as well as mechanical floor and roof plans. We reviewed appropriate space conditioning strategies for shop areas including ventilation, evaporative cooling and radiant heating. The project also included Title 24 calculations, site power plans, lighting floor plans, outdoor lighting, and fire alarm design. We provided power to support mechanical, plumbing and telecommunications equipment and supported water, waste and gas calculations, and plumbing floor plans. Other design elements included a fire sprinkler system, cabling system for voice and data within building and pathways and conduit infrastructure design to support the TraPac security system.
