Timber Storage Shed,
Shoreham Port

As the Principle Contractor, Edburton carried out works as part of the huge development for a new Timber Storage Shed at the Port, which has grown in recent years to become one of the largest cargo ports on the South Coast.

Working with Shoreham Port Authority, Helmsley Orrell Partnership, and Reid Steel, Edburton undertook the construction of the new state-of-the-art Timber Shed with pin point accuracy. The works included cast-in holding down bolts and RC Push Walls, to a very high tolerance, which enabled Reid Steel to complete the vast steel structure ahead of the local time frame.

The requirement was to provide a further 7000m2 of covered storage for the timber handling facilities which already occupy 40,000m2 of covered area on its 46 acre site.
