The Port of Dover is searching for a contractor for its £20M civil engineering framework.
The four-year contract will include both landside and marine-side general civils works including reactive works, alterations, new build, repairs and planned maintenance.
Works packages will be worth up to £1M, and the Kent port estimates spending £5M a year under the framework.
The framework for Europe’s busiest ferry port will begin in 2019 and run until 2023. The deadline to submit requests to participate in the procurement process is 27 July.
The port is also seeking a contractor to carry out £10M of highways and infrastructure works, which will include construction of marina and boatyard access roads, boatyard resurfacing and the refurbishment of the historic Clock Tower Square as part of the Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) programme.
In May, VolkerFitzpatrick won a £21M contract to deliver the paving, utilities and infrastructure works for the DWDR. During the 12-month programme it will work alongside VSBW, a joint venture between VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster, which won a £115M contract to build two new berths at the port at the beginning of last year.
