Mace Appointed on Major Associated British Ports Projects
17 February 2023

Mace has been appointed through the Associated British Ports Group Professional Services Framework and will provide a range of services, including project management, cost and commercial advisory, project support and site supervision.

The work will include the provision of services at the ports of Immingham, Southampton, Lowestoft and Plymouth, as well as a further project in Newport in Wales.

Sean Gray, Director of Transportation at Mace, said: “It’s been an exciting time for our ports team, with these latest wins marking a sizeable expansion in our portfolio.

“Our team will combine their practical delivery experience in the transportation sector with localised knowledge to provide fresh thinking to deliver the projects successfully. We are looking forward to playing our part in delivering these projects which will leave a lasting positive legacy for their users and wider communities.”


New Ro-Ro Facility in North East Lincolnshire


Immingham Eastern roll-on roll-off terminal in North East Lincolnshire is a major project involving the construction of a new Ro-Ro facility within the eastern side of the port, which will include the creation of two new harbour berths. On this project, which is set to complete in 2025, Mace will provide contract administration, cost management and scheduling services.

Once complete, the works will allow increase capacity between the UK’s east coast and continental Europe, predominantly for the freight market, giving more options and supply chain resilience for British businesses.


The Port of Southampton Project


The Port of Southampton project focuses on the expansion of the existing container-to-rail facility in the Western Docks, taking more trucks off the road, reducing emissions and improving air quality. The project will involve an expansion of the existing rail terminal at the dock alongside extending the existing rail loading platform. The finished project will include new access points for HGVs and new site offices at one of the UK’s largest ports. Here Mace’s work will include project management, scheduling, cost management, contract administration and site supervision.


Port of Lowestoft


Mace’s work at the Port of Lowestoft, otherwise known as the LEEF (Lowestoft Eastern Energy Facility) project, will focus on the redevelopment of the Suffolk port’s Outer Harbour. This redevelopment will support offshore wind farms by providing an additional three service operation vessel berths and six crew transfer vessel berths, alongside six acres of land to support the operations and maintenance stages servicing the offshore energy industry.
