Cullen Grummitt & Roe was commissioned to carry out detailed design, site supervision and project management for conversion of general cargo wharves into a modern container terminal. As part of the redevelopment of Piers 1, 2 and 3 CGR carried out detailed design, site supervision and project management for electrical services.

CGR was involved in the project through the eight stages of construction. One of the requirements was for the port to remain operational throughout the construction period. CGR achieved this by co-ordinating the execution of civil and electrical works with the operations of the terminal.
