Duration: 20 Weeks
SOL Services was appointed to carry out the re-modelling and full refurbishment of the Calais Border Control Facility. This project involved re-location of several existing offices and toilets and therefore required close liaison and with multiple parties to co-ordinate the programme. Traffic management was also a key consideration to minimise disruption to travellers using the car ferry. The works involved:
Internal alterations: Complete strip out and replacement of offices and passport desks for outgoing travellers from the ferry port.
Roofing: Repairs to existing roof via an over board method to minimise exposure to the elements and to keep the facility working and dry.
Construction: New offices and interview rooms were constructed to provide extra capacity.
