The firm’s consultancy arm has been selected by Associated British Ports (ABP) for a raft of professional service contracts across ABP’s portfolio. 

The works, acquired via ABP’s Group Professional Services Framework, includes project management, cost and commercial advisory, project support and site supervision. 

  • Immingham 
  • Southampton 
  • Lowestoft  
  • Plymouth 
  • Newport (Wales) 

At the Immingham Eastern terminal in North East Lincolnshire, Mace will provide contract administration, cost management and scheduling services on the construction of a new “roll-on roll-off” facility, which includes two new harbour berths. Works are set to complete in 2025. 

The Port of Southampton will see the firm deliver project management, scheduling, cost management, contract administration and site supervision to the expansion of the existing rail terminal at the dock, alongside extending the rail loading platform. 

At Lowestoft, or the LEEF (Lowestoft Eastern Energy Facility), Mace will provide contract administration, cost management and scheduling services to the redevelopment of the outer harbour to support offshore windfarms. 

And at the Millbay Ferry terminal in Plymouth, Mace will oversee a RIBA Stage 3 developed design for new facilities, and upgrades to improve the old infrastructure.
