SCACLI completes $267 million airport construction project


SCACLI recently completed another airport construction project – the LF Wade International Airport Redevelopment Project, Bermuda.

The award-winning $267 million work began in March 2017 and was a multi-year project.

The LF Wade Project included the construction of the new 28,800 sq m terminal, construction of additional apron space, light systems installations for the apron, modifying the taxiway, installing new aircraft hydrant refueling systems and decommissioning a majority of the current terminal.

SCACLI, an industry leader in International Projects Freight Forwarding, was nominated to manage and oversee all the transportation requirements.

Maria Misurka, COO and Partner explains: “Moving cargo to Bermuda had its unique challenges and as the Project Manager, the Bermuda team and I found solutions with our many partnerships and contacts around the world.

“SCACLI’s role consisted of project management, marshalling and cargo movements from origins such as USA, Canada, UK, Spain, China, and the Netherlands.”

Large scale construction jobs such as the LF Wade Project require expertise and customized planning. SCACLI worked closely with all parties by organizing chartered vessels, barge movements and mobilisation of heavy equipment.

Additionally, SCACLI arranged ocean container shipping, consolidations, air cargo expedite, and air charter shipping on behalf of the customer and their subcontractors. This work was completed not only for the new terminal, but also for the runway, hangars, offices, boarding bridges, aircraft refueling systems, HVAC, and security systems.

SCACLI customised plans and managed every PO from the moment it was issued until the cargo arrived customs-cleared delivered to site, while shipping everything required to build this airport, from small tools, parts and dangerous goods to heavy construction machinery, vehicles, cranes, the asphalt plant, backhoes, bulldozers and graders.

Misurka, COO states: “SCACLI is proud to have been trusted to manage the shipping for the construction of this multi award winning airport L.F Wade Project which is now open and has transformed the airport experience for visitors to this Bermudaful island.”
