VolkerFitzpatrick has won a £21M contract to deliver the paving, utilities and infrastructure works for the Dover Western Docks Revival project.
The works will include heavy duty port paving, interconnecting roads, power and lighting, landscaping, street furniture, reefer gantries, fencing, access gates and border control facilities.
During the 12-month programme VolkerFitzpatrick will work alongside VSBW, a joint venture between VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminister, which is delivering the £115M marine structures and bridge contract for the development.
VolkerFitzpatrick civils division managing director Chris Evans said: “Supporting the overall development of Dover Western Docks is a very exciting and prestigious contract to have been awarded, particularly in terms of the growth expected for the port in the coming years.
“We will work collaboratively with VolkerStevin which will allow us a greater understanding of the project from the outset.”
The first and second stage of the development programme are expected to be completed by the beginning of next year.
Port of Dover DWDR programme director Dave Herrod said: “The appointment of VolkerFitzpatrick is another significant milestone as the Port works hard to deliver the first stage of Dover’s Western Docks Revival in 2019.
“The revival of the Western Docks supports the development agenda for Dover, being identified as the key catalyst for the wider regeneration of the area.”
