The scope of works on this Immingham demolition project included the demolition of Shed No.11 and Shed 10 together with all associated mechanical and electrical works.


Shed No.11 was a bulk store with mechanical items such as conveyors, transfer belts, hoppers etc. within the building. The scope of works included the attached offices and canopy as well as a conveyor crossing the road to quay side. An existing sub level conveyor pit was present in Shed No.11. Once the building was demolished and the equipment removed, Hughes and Salvidge were required to fill this with suitable material as part of the works.

There were two schemes associated with Shed 10. Scheme A required the transfer towers to be removed including the conveyor between Shed 10 and 11; the roof also had to be made water tight. Scheme B involved removing the front of the building to a suitable line past the transfer towers.

At the time of this works, the Immingham Fertiliser Terminal was undergoing an extensive redevelopment programme. A new bulk storage facility was under construction adjacent to the site of the demolition and the remaining site was live. Communication was of paramount importance with all parties on site and careful planning and monitoring of the works ensured that impacts associated with the demolition phase were kept to an absolute minimum.

We completed this project on time and budget for our client, Associated British Ports.
