The Port of Felixstowe has grown organically over the last 75 years to become the largest container port in the UK. Staff facilities and administrative offices have up till now been added and refurbished in a piecemeal fashion and these dilapidated structures are now to be replaced with a new building that accommodates all Port staff under one roof.
The new building will provide office space for up to 450 staff, shared amenity facilities for up to 2,000 staff in a double height light filled space, modern changing facilities and meeting and training rooms.
Formation Architects have recently completed detailed consultation with all staff to determine the optimum layout of the building.
The project will be submitted for planning later this year.
