A Building Fit for a World Class Port Authority

Bartlett Cocke General Contractors was proud to attend the recent dedication for the Port of Corpus Christi’s new Executive Administration Building. The design phase for this design-build project started in early 2018 and construction commenced in July 2019. This new state-of-the-art facility will help Build Better Lives throughout the Coastal Bend community and serve as a modernized workspace for the nation’s leading energy port by helping facilitate efficient communication and workflow by gathering all Port Authority Departments under one roof and fostering morale with a new, modern, amenity-filled work environment.

"It has been a pleasure working on the Port of Corpus Christi New Executive Administration Building. This is a great building built by a great team. From the Owner to the design-build team, to the incredible group of subcontractors that worked on the project, we could not have asked for a better team. A special thanks go out to our joint venture partner Beecroft Construction and our design partner Richter Architects."

-Hunter Moeller, Project Manager

The new home for the Port of Corpus Christi suits its status as the largest port in the United States in total revenue to date. The building is 75,525 square-feet and features modernized technology engineered to facilitate increased business operations; improved workspace that now hosts several departments that had previously been split between various buildings; a world-class fitness center; and conference rooms to accommodate team meetings and stakeholder events.

"The new Port Executive Administration Building not only builds upon our success of our past but also prepares the Port of Corpus Christi Authority for future generations in a modern and collaborative work environment."

Sean Strawbridge, Chief Executive Officer for the Port of Corpus Christi

"The Port Executive Administration Building is designed to benefit our most important asset – our people – and will serve as a shining beacon for maritime commerce in the State of Texas as our region and nation move into a new time of prosperity."

Charles W. Zahn, Jr., Chairman of the Port of Corpus Christi Commission
