Clugston wins contract for Hull docks facility

Siemens has appointed Humber-based Clugston to build a service and logistics facility at Hull’s Alexandra Dock.

The 12,300m2 facility will be used by Siemens’ wind turbine blade factory, which is currently being constructed. The building will be the logistics hub for the firm’s UK onshore and offshore service business and used for turbine service and maintenance as well as storage.

Siemens general manager for real estate and construction at the Hull project Shaun Cray said: “Clugston supplied the most competitive bid, in terms of programme and price, as well as proposing an innovative engineering solution to deliver enhanced value to Siemens, in order to secure this contract against significant competition from other high-quality regional and national construction companies.”

Clugston Construction managing director Steve Radcliffe added: “As a local business whose involvement in the Humber area stretches back almost 80 years, we are excited to be playing a part in building this facility which will play such an important role in the growth of the offshore wind industry and establishing the region as the centre of renewable energy in the UK.

“In delivering this scheme we will draw upon our local construction skills and supply chain which will create further economic benefits for the region.

“As members of UK Build, the trade body formed to represent main contractors and specialist sub-contractors, we support the drive to promote the economic advantages of using local construction skills and resources. This is based on evidence that every £1 spent on construction output generates £2.84 of total economic activity, with much of that retained locally due to the structure of the construction industry.

“To achieve this, we will draw on existing relationships, established over many years, with regional suppliers and host a ‘meet the buyer’ event to create additional local opportunities.”

Construction will start in November and is due to be completed in just under a year.
