Spencer Group were appointed by Associated British Ports to design and construct a facility capable of storing and distributing paper products at the Finland Terminal in Hull. As the EPC contractor for this project, Spencer Group were able to work with the client to find alternative design and construction solutions, to reduce the necessary site time and programme of works.

The project involved the design and construction of a 36,000m2 marine terminal for the reception, storage and distribution of paper products at the Finland Terminal, on behalf of Associated British Ports. The contract included the demolition of several existing buildings and the refurbishment of two existing buildings with new doors, fire alarm installation and a 1,700m2 canopy.
Spencer Group were also responsible for extending 160m of existing crane and conductor rails at the port, alongside design and installing a new Roll-on Roll-off berth. As part of the wider scheme of works, 32,000m2 of external paved areas and quay strengthening works were also undertaken at the port.
Through Spencer Group’s innovative approach to design and construction projects, two weeks critical site time was saved during the construction of the Roll-on Roll-off berth, saving the client time and money, whilst enabling port operations to resume earlier than anticipated. This was made possible through the use of a large element of pre-engineering and pre-cast components, reducing the required time on site, and disruption to port operations.
