Students Get Close Look at the PortMiami Tunnel Pre-Cast Facility

Engineering students at TERRA High School in Miami Dade County, FL recently received a tour of the state-of-the-artPortMiami Tunnel Precast Yard while on a field trip – part of The Lemartec Student Mentorship Program.

“We are proud to be able to facilitate a real world learning experience for these eager engineering students.” Said Manny Garcia-Tuñon, president of Lemartec Engineering and Construction Corporation.  “It was great to see the awe in their faces as they watched the moulds being poured, and then being moved by the overhead cranes.”

The Pre-Cast facility is responsible for production of all the tunnel’s concrete panels that will serve as the structural lining – 12,000 panels in total, each weighing over 12 tons.  The Lemartec Student Mentorship Program is an interactive course developed by Lemartec in which our employees volunteer their time and knowledge to give students a real-time look at the design and construction process.
