Contracts were awarded to Greenville's Hogan Construction Group for support facilities for the South Carolina Inland Port in Greer.

Hogan Construction Group of Greenville has been awarded contracts for the support facilities for the South Carolina Inland Port in Greer.

The port container traffic and logistical control facilities include:

• A six-lane open air Inbound/Outbound Canopy fostering natural sky lighting will serve all incoming and outgoing traffic complete with convenient weighbridge truck scales.

• The three-lane Wash Rack Station and Maintenance Building will aid all port container and Inland Port traffic as needed.

• The Inland Port will have Security Stations and a Transportation Operations Building hosting offices, meeting rooms and IT services to provide logistical efficiency to the international container movement process.

The project is scheduled to be complete by September.

‘‘Hogan Construction is honored to have a part of a project as important as South Carolina’s Inland Port,” Chris Bowen, Vice-President of Hogan Construction Group, said. “The port is unique in its design and will have a long-term economic impact on our state. Hogan’s participation is a positive example of the economic ripple effect of this project on our Upstate.’’

Illinois-based Ragnar Benson, the Construction Manager for CenterPoint Properties, awarded Hogan Construction the contracts.

Activity has increased at a frenetic pace this month, despite two weekends of drenching rain.

• Just last week G&P Trucking announced the expansion of 14 acres on its property for a full service terminal.

Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport named the highway entry point into the port GSP Logistics Parkway that will connect to the port operations’ road International Commerce Way.

• The South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) and Nordic Cold Storage, LLC announced on May 7 they reached a settlement concerning the Nordic facility lease in Greer.

• Throughout May the property on Moore Street has been razed to make way for a second set of tracks for Norfolk Southern to service containers coming into and leaving the port.
