CLIENT: Peel Ports/ ECOCEM
SERVICE: Civil engineering/Import Terminal, Silos and Substation
VALUE: £1.5 Million
Following a detailed tender process, Moorcroft was contracted to construct a silo with weighbridge, office, substation and infrastructure connected to the dock system for the import of cement. The project was commissioned by ECOCEM as a joint venture between itself and Peel Ports. As the principal contractor, Moorcroft took responsibility for project management with responsibility for service delivery, governance and Health and Safety.
Working within the tight confines of a fully operational dock system, Moorcroft took responsibility for the management of a number of specialist sub-contractors, including those from overseas.
Due to the ground conditions and the sub surface dock walls, Moorcroft worked closely with the clients and the design team to provide cost effective methods for piling and substructures to enable the project to progress.
Project delivery was time bound due to the pre-arranged arrival of ships into the terminal for the distribution of product.
Moorcroft delivered phase 1 of the project on time to an agreed budget, resulting in the commercial deadlines for the client being met.
As a result of the success of phase 1, Moorcroft was awarded phase 2 which involved the provision of an additional silo, base weighbridge and infrastructure.
