Leading UK construction company McLaughlin & Harvey has completed a massive brand new bulk warehouse at the Port of Liverpool.
Situated quayside on Alexandra Dock, McLaughlin & Harvey was appointed as main contractor by Peel Ports Group in March, 2015 to deliver the multi-million-pound storage facility within a 26-week programme.
The new bulk warehouse is 375 metres long, the length of three and a half football pitches, and will be used for the handling and storage of bulk cargo at the port.
Andy Ferguson, Operations Manager at McLaughlin & Harvey, said: “As a company, we’re used to building warehouses, but this has been the biggest project, to this scale, we’ve built so far.
“It’s been a bit of a challenge with the tight 26 week programme, but as a leading port group, Peel Ports needed a high-quality storage facility which we delivered.
“It has been a rewarding project for myself and the team, while adding to McLaughlin & Harvey’s credentials as a leader in this sector.”
The new bulk storage facility has been positioned to provide more space between the building and the quayside for discharging vessels.
David Huck, Port Director at Peel Ports, said: “McLaughlin & Harvey have delivered on the brief to construct a high-quality storage facility, capable of handling the tonnes of bulk materials that arrive at the Port of Liverpool on a daily basis.
“The new facility will enhance our warehousing and distribution offering at the port, providing us with a strengthened storage and supply chain offering to our customers.”
