Project Scope

The project involved the design and construction of a 124m x 50m bulk storage shed, complete with a clear span steel portal frame and 4m high retaining walls around the perimeter of the shed and internal walls, dividing the shed into 6 separate bays. The shed was finished with electric roller shutter doors to allow easy access. We were also involved in the design and construction of 2 no. weighbridges on site.

As part of the greater scheme of works, we were required to carry out an initial site clearance and muck shift of a 12,000m2 site, 1300m of trench works including drainage, ducting, water mains and 6500m2 of resurfacing.

12,000m2 site

Spencer Group successfully completed the project on time and to budget, and were highly commended by Associated British Ports for the scope of works. As a result of our successes on Shed 22, we have since been appointed by ABP to work on a number of other sheds across different ports, including sheds 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 18, 26 and 52, demonstrating our success and capability of works within this area.
