Morgan Sindall wins Southampton port work
Morgan Sindall has secured work worth £24m to expand car storage and handling facilities at the Port of Southampton.
Associated British Ports (ABP) has commissioned Morgan Sindall to construct two new multi-deck car storage facilities to enable the port to handle more cars being exported or imported. ABP’s is investing £50m to improve vehicle handling facilities at Southampton, which is already the UK’s principle automotive port.
The scheme at Southampton’s Eastern and Western Docks will see Morgan Sindall construct a pair of five-storey storage facilities, deck 6 and deck 7, which will provide a combined total of 8,669 additional car parking spaces for the port.
Deck 6 is a 2.5-acre facility over five levels that will provide car parking spaces for 3,251 vehicles. Deck 7, the port’s largest car storage facility, is a four-acre facility that will be capable of housing 5,418 vehicles over five levels.
Bison Manufacturing will supply 84,000m2 of its 150mm deep hollowcore units for the project between January and November 2017.
In 2015 Morgan Sindall completed an £8.3m extension of the port. Regional managing director Andy Duff said: “Morgan Sindall is delighted to have been appointed to this significant scheme, following our team’s successful delivery of the first phase of ABP’s Southampton Port expansion project last year.
“Morgan Sindall’s significant experience and knowledge gleaned delivering high-quality projects of a similar nature will stand us in good stead and we’re looking forward to delivering two great new facilities which will have a highly positive impact on the port’s ability to handle the huge numbers of vehicles it manages each year.”
