The San Diego Unified Port District retained Bermello Ajamil & Partners, Inc. BA, along with a team of experts, to prepare a cruise market and economic impact assessment, and to subsequently provide guidance in the design of future facilities and operations that met market opportunities and challenges.

A program that initially comprised the design of a temporary terminal facility to be built atop one of the oldest existing Navy Piers in San Diego eventually evolved into a permanent 2-story, 52,250-sq.ft. steel-framed structure that included vital structural improvements and seismic retrofitting of its pier in order to meet existing requirements. In addition to the structural improvements, new mooring hardware and a new fendering system were also provided
