The Inland Port operations center is the first structure to go vertical. Hogan Construction began adding steel to the foundation on Tuesday.

Things are looking up at the Greer Inland Port. “Today (Tuesday) we’re starting to go vertical,” said Chris Bowen, Hogan Construction Group Vice President.

Hogan was awarded contracts to build support facilities for the South Carolina Inland Port.

• 3,000 square foot operations center (offices, meeting rooms, IT services)

• 1,500 square foot maintenance facility

• 2,500 square foot, three-lane truck wash rack

• 6-lane open air Inbound/Outbound Canopy to serve all traffic complete with weighbridge truck scales

• Security checkpoints

Bowen said Tuesday his company is on target with all deadlined projects.  “Structural steel was scheduled to be delivered July 16 and it was,” Bowen said. That steel is being erected at the operations center and can be seen as the only vertical construction taking place at the port.

The facilities are on the west side of the port.

BMW Manufacturing Co. in Greer is constructing a $13.4 million, 414,000 square-foot warehouse to be used as an assembly facility. It is located on property adjacent to the port and leased from the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport.

South Carolina Ports Authority President and CEO Jim Newsome announced Tuesday that the first cargo moved from the inland port is expected around Oct. 1. The $25 million facility had been scheduled to open around Labor Day.
