Morgan Sindall wins port expansion project

NCE stock ports

Construction firm Morgan Sindall has won two contracts worth a total of £24M in the ongoing expansion of the Port of Southampton.

The two contracts will see further extension of the car storage and handling facilities at Southampton, the UK’s principal automotive port.

Port owner Associated British Ports (ABP) has commissioned the construction of two new multi-deck car storage facilities, designed to allow the port to deal with a far greater number of cars. The scheme will allow for the storage of 8,669 additional car parking spaces at the port.

Morgan Sindall’s appointment is part of ABP’s £50M investment to transform facilities at Southampton. This contract award follows the company’s successful delivery of an £8.3M extension of the port in 2015.

“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,” said Morgan Sindall managing director in the south Andy Duff.

“ABP’s investment and wider development of the port will create a world-class facility and further boost Southampton’s standing as the UK’s number one vehicle handling port. We’re pleased and proud to be working alongside ABP to expand and upgrade this key international trade gateway.”
