Works Scope

The works consisted of a major civils and infrastructure project at the Port of Immingham. Britcon undertook the enabling and new works associated with the ports new border control facilities, to coincide with United Kingdom leaving the European Union.

Before main works commenced, Britcon undertook the diversion of an existing terminal rail track and signals (20metres), to facilitate new drainage, roadways, external concrete hard standing, ICT ducting (1.5km), external lighting, together with security barrier controls, APNR CCTV and associated control switch room.

Britcon employed its own design team to assist with navigating the design around a complicated operational site. This included understanding and ascertaining existing utility services, phasing of the works to accommodate working around a live port. The development of the design took into consideration varying underground risk areas due to the depth of the heavily reinforced concrete hardstanding, meaning that some areas of drainage and ducting was re-routed to protect risk exposure to our operations teams, or alternatively mole excavation/tunneling.
