Fisher’s CenterPoint Landing project at the Port of Oakland is well underway since the final permit was approved in mid-July. Over the last year, Fisher’s construction team has been actively engaged in stabilizing and preparing the 27-acre site which was the former Oakland Army Base, decommissioned and turned over to the Port of Oakland 15 years ago.
When completed in 2020, the Class A industrial facility will have 466,437 sq. ft. of tenant space with 148 truck docks. The site for the concrete tilt-up building was prepared by using deep dynamic compaction and wick drains in conjunction with a 16’ surcharge or preload to settle the dynamic soils found throughout the property. The CenterPoint Landing at Oakland Seaport Project will seek USGBC LEED Silver Certification for the building shell.
As the general contractor, Fisher Construction Group is managing all on site activities from site prep and utilities through final commissioning. Fisher also manages the Port of Oakland’s MAPLA program (Maritime and Aviation Project Labor Agreement) which ensures subcontractors comply with the social justice program and local hiring goals of the Port of Oakland. The workforce will be made up of 37 different subcontractors working in 13 trades, and putting in approximately 60,000 hours constructing the building shell.
CenterPoint Landing will be the cornerstone development in the Port’s commitment to cargo transportation and logistics. Fisher Construction Group’s successful project with Lineage Logistics CoolPort, also in the Port of Oakland, lead to the project with CenterPoint.
