Knights Brown successfully secured the contract for the design and construction of a steel frame bulk storage shed at Alexandra Dock in Newport.

At approximately 3,000m² the design allows for further expansion to meet future demand.

Elements to the work comprise foundations, a structural steel frame, and perimeter in-situ reinforced concrete retaining walls, as well as the design and installation of the electrical distribution and lighting system.

The Port of Newport handles around 2.2m tonnes of cargo a year, supporting 3,000 local jobs and contributing £186m a year to the Welsh economy. This new facility will support demand for high quality storage of a range of cargo handled by the port.

our sectors

Knights Brown was a great client to deal with. We felt from the very outset that they worked with us rather than for us, demonstrating real collaboration in order to minimise disruption to the port. The works were also delivered through a very challenging time, with the latter stages coinciding with the COVID-19 pandemic. Their approach to this was thoroughly professional, with health and safety the primary consideration. Working practices were strictly amended and monitored, with the project completed to the satisfaction of all involved.

This complex and challenging project was a collaborative undertaking from the outset. Combining two projects was inspirational, saving not only money but diverting 22,000m3 from landfill. Some extremely innovative tools and methods were used to demolish the pier, recover material and to achieve the lowest environmental impact on one of the most environmentally designated places in the UK.
