terminal scheduled for completion in November
BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Workers on Port Canaveral’s newest cruise facility, Cruise Terminal 1, recently celebrated a milestone in the project: The “Dry In” Celebration is the point at which a building’s roof is fully complete, allowing interior finishing work to begin.
The terminal is scheduled for completion in November.
In appreciation of jobs the Port project has provided and to express gratitude to the workers, lead contractor Ivey’s Construction of Merritt Island hosted the lunch to recognize those whose hard work is contributing to the efficient and speedy progress of the project.
The celebration has special meaning for the many local workers for whom the project has provided jobs and the local businesses for whom it has provided revenue opportunities.
Approximately 220 construction personnel are employed on the site. In addition to Ivey’s, the project uses 40 sub-contractors and 6 design companies.
The Port’s dedication to providing local opportunities resulted in a very high percentage of local participation: 85 percent of those involved are Brevard County residents and businesses.
