Construction of the Port of Miami Tunnel (POMT) in Miami, FL, began in December 2010 and, when complete, in May of 2014, will provide direct access between the seaport and highways I-395 and I-95, by connecting SR A1A/MacArthur Causeway to Dodge Island.

The project will create another entry to the Port of Miami besides the Port Bridge, and keep the Port of Miami, the community’s second largest economic generator, competitive.

Calbrite, its representative, Fox-Rowden-McBrayer (FRM), and Graybar were successful in securing a project of this magnitude that required a collaborative, dedicated and solution-oriented approach.

While everyone involved played a critical role and each managed specific relations and addressed various needs, Greg Stuart, a sales representative at FRM, was involved throughout the approval process and in facilitating all communication.

“Calbrite provided the contractors and end-users the most economical solution for this type of environment,” said Greg Stuart. “In addition to the ease of installation attributes and the long-term value that stainless steel EMT provides, this was a federally funded project and required the manufacturer to meet very specific requirements set forth from the Buy America Act & FHWA (Federal Highway Administration). Calbrite was the only manufacturer that could meet or exceed these requirements within the strict lead times.”

Calbrite met these critical requirements and lead times a few weeks ahead of schedule. “We are continually striving to not just simply meet our customer’s expectations but to exceed them,” according to Matt Westerfield, Director of Operations at Calbrite. “This commitment has positioned Calbrite as the industry leader in the transportation and infrastructure markets.” Calbrite products provide its customer’s long-term value, lowest cost of ownership, corrosion resistance, ease of installation and are made in USA and meet ARRA Compliancy.
