Port of Hull Steel Terminal - Spencer Group

Port of Hull Steel Terminal

This facility provides a covered ship off-loading facility for finished steel products at the Port of Hull. Spencer provided civil, structural, mechanical, EC&I and rail design and build services to deliver:


  • •  10,000m2 steel framed building over exisiting, flooded dry dock
  • •  Substantial reinforced concrete foundation structures to enable the dry dock to return to its former use if required
  • •  Installation of 4no 25t travelling gantry cranes
  • •  Extensive hard standing, weighbridge and offices
  • •  Marine fenders
  • •  Extension to existing rail infrastructure and new rail head


The new facility required 178 pre-cast concrete piles to take building loads away from critical infrastructure, including pumping sumps and underground galleries. Once complete the facility enabled unloading of a 2,000t vessel in 7 hours.
