White-Spunner Construction completed the Alabama Cruise Terminal in 232 days to accommodate the Carnival Cruise Line’s inaugural sailing from Mobile in October 2004. The terminal is 66,000 square feet, two stories tall and includes a 500-space parking facility. This terminal is Alabama’s first venture into a new industry and the first building in the nation to meet and exceed new security standards...all in record time. Working closely with local workers, contractors, suppliers and designers, White-Spunner Construction worked double shifts to meet the target completion date within budget. A pre-cast structural system was used to construct the building in hours and minutes rather than days and weeks. This was critical to the project’s success because it eliminated weather-related issues that typically plague the Mobile area during the spring.
