Coast Guard holds ribbon-cutting ceremony at Cleveland Moorings facility


The new facility will be the home to Marine Safety Unit Cleveland, Station Cleveland Harbor, Coast Guard Cutter Neah Bay, Electronics Support Detachment Cleveland and a Coast Guard Exchange.


Coast Guard holds ribbon-cutting ceremony at Cleveland Moorings facility


US Coast Guard, October 16, 2012 - CLEVELAND — The U.S. Coast Guard hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony marking the completion of a new building at its Cleveland Moorings facility Tuesday at 11 a.m.

Rear Adm. Michael Parks, commander of the 9th Coast Guard District, retired Ohio Senator George Voinovich and Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson attended and participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The Fiscal Year 2010 Homeland Security Appropriations Bill provided $16.8 million in funding "to complete the project proposal to renovate, improve, or construct a new Station and Marine Safety Unit Cleveland Harbor, Ohio, and to begin work on this project."

The $16.8 million funded the first phase of the project — a 25,000 square foot operations, administrative and crew berthing building. This will house the marine safety unit, smallboat station and electronics support detachment.

Construction of the building started in late 2010 and was completed this fall.

The building was designed to blend with the modern architecture of Cleveland’s nearby waterfront development and to achieve LEED Gold environmental standards. To learn more about the building's LEED Gold certification, click here to read a blog post.

U.S. Coast Guard Facilities Design and Construction Center managed the project with Scaparotti Construction Group as the prime contractor in partnership with Perspective Architecture and C.T. Taylor Construction.

Phase I will be completed on schedule next month with the demolition of the previous building. Phase II will begin shortly using funds remaining after the completion of Phase I. Phase II will involve the construction a 9,000 square foot building on the site of the soon-to-be demolished building, and it will include an engineering shop and storage facilities for multiple smallboats and cutters.

AMEC is the prime contractor for Phase II and will retain Scaparotti and several other sub-contractors from Phase I.

"This new facility represents a tremendous step forward that will allow Coast Guard men and women to better respond to maritime threats and emergencies in and around the Cleveland area," said Rear Adm. Michael N. Parks, commander of the 9th Coast Guard District.

Almost 100 U.S. Coast Guard personnel work on Lake Erie’s shore at the end of East 9th Street in Cleveland.

The base is home to Marine Safety Unit Cleveland, Station Cleveland Harbor, Coast Guard Cutter Neah Bay, Electronics Support Detachment Cleveland and a Coast Guard Exchange.

Cutter Neah Bay is moored to a World War II-era pier that is corroded and failing. Marine Safety Unit Cleveland is located in several World War II-era buildings that are too small and expensive to maintain. Station Cleveland Harbor’s crew has resided in “temporary” spaces since repeated sewage overflows forced it out of its previous location in 2005.
