    Associated British Ports (Wales & Short Sea Ports)





    This design and construct contract with ABP, the UK’s leading port operator, is for a manufacturing facility in the Port of Newport on a 34,000m2 site.

    The new facility will receive and store shipped deliveries eliminating the need to transport the raw materials from the port to an in-land factory by road, helping to reduce CO2 emissions. The factory will benefit from green power generated by ABP’s on-site renewables, including wind and solar sources.

    The contract comprises the design and construction of:

    • 11,440m2 manufacturing & storage
    • 1,501m2 bulk material storage
    • 899m2 calcification plant shed
    • 760m2 canopy & hard standing
    • 622m2 offices

    This project demonstrates the delivery of flexible, port-centric manufacturing and distribution solutions for ABP’s customers that minimise costs and carbon emissions.

    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.
