McClier-Frederic R. Harris To Create Major Hub On Suez Canal

Friday, October 29, 1999
The McClier-Frederic R. Harris architecture, engineering, construction and consulting team has been selected to create a trade port and industrial city at Port Said East, located at the Mediterranean tip of the Suez Canal. The project, which is valued at more than $1 billion, will facilitate the global movement of products between Asia and Europe, as well as contribute to the long-term economic prosperity of Egypt by improving the country's ability to manufacture and export goods to countries throughout the Mediterranean, Europe and the United States. As a multi-modal hub, Port Said East will integrate air, rail, water, and road transportation to create a logistical center that will benefit global manufacturing companies, international transportation companies and the region. Although the project is currently in a detailed planning and engineering stage, initial prototype facilities have already been constructed.
