Teams are a week away from substantial completion on an expansion project at the Port of Galveston’s Cruise Terminal No. 2. This $12 million renovation adds a 60,000-sq-ft expansion to the existing 90,000-sq-ft terminal. Upon completion, the newly expanded facility will be able to accommodate larger vessels, such as Liberty of the Seas, a 1,100-ft cruise ship owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.
“The existing cruise terminal facility also needed to be expanded in order to accommodate the greater number of passengers,” says Kyle Rodemacher, design manager with the project’s contractor Webber LLC.
Leading the expansion’s design were BEA Architects in Miami and Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam Inc. (LAN) in Houston, with Webber leading the design-build project on the construction side.
