Port of Tilbury

New Border Control Inspection Building

Company: Cadman Construction Ltd  |  Category: Industrial and Retail

The completion of a new 12 bay Border Control Post has been achieved and was fully operational for the Port of Tilbury on the day of Handover.

The superstructure comprises of a structural steel frame encased with composite cladding. The internal structure is formed of a composite wall and ceiling panel system providing suitable storage areas for groceries. Construction required careful logistical planning due to its location on the new Tilbury 2 Port and the close proximity of live overhead and underground services critical to the Port's daily activities.

Key Successes:

  • Successfully negotiating all logistical changes without disruption to the Port's 24-hour operational activities


  • Synchronised design and construction of two similar project types within a limited time period


  • Delivery of a high quality finished product with zero defects on completion
