Whitemountain has completed works at DP World, London Gateway in Essex.
London Gateway is set to be the UK’s most integrated logistics hub; a state–of–the–art, globally connected deep–sea port and rail terminal, on the same site as an expansive land bank for the flexible and fast development of logistics facilities and warehouses.

After mobilisation the site was cleared and earthworks completed to enable the construction of an access road and car park.

Installation of a ducting network ensued with foundations for electrical and security installations. The drainage option chosen for this scheme attenuated surface water via open channels, filter drains, and an open soakaway.

Once all foundations and ducting were completed, road construction was completed in house by Whitemountain’s surfacing team with the inclusion of line marking for car park spaces and the access road. For the port security safety fencing, gates, barriers, turnstiles and CCTV cameras were installed. Street lighting was installed along with a 500m covered walkway to provide safe access for the ports staff to and from the terminal building in all weather conditions.
