Port of Newport International Terminal: Newport, Oregon

The Port of Newport rebuilt its International Terminal, one of only three deep draft terminals on the Oregon coast, to protect aquatic habitat and water quality in Yaquina Bay. Otak CPM served as owner’s representative on this $26 million project, developing and managing budget and schedule, coordinating with the architecture/engineering team and overseeing contract management, and selecting the construction manager/general contractor.

Before rebuilding the terminal, we focused on site cleanup and remediation, including two World War II concrete cargo vessels that were loaded with bunker fuel, asbestos, oil, and gravel. We coordinated with the Oregon Coast Alliance, Department of Environmental Quality, US Army Corps of Engineers, and the Port of Newport to provide careful and thorough cleanup and remediation. The new terminal serves as a significant port for international commerce. This project received the National Phoenix Award in 2011, which represents excellence in brownfield replacement projects. The rebuilt terminal includes two docks, warehouse space, and administrative offices.

“The Otak CPM team led by Mike Day and Joshua Dodson is bar none the most professional and knowledgeable project management team I have worked with and one of the most responsive and reliable.”
