VolkerStevin has been awarded a £34 million design and build contract for the reconstruct of jetty at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Portsmouth (HMNB Portsmouth) that will house the new Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers.
The existing Middle Slip jetty, originally built in the 1920’s, has seen several modifications throughout the years including an extensive review and refurbishment in the 1970’s.
VolkerStevin is collaborating with Volker Stevin International for delivery and with CH2M for the design of this project.
Rob Coupe, managing director for VolkerStevin, commented: “We are very pleased to be appointed for this high profile project by the Ministry of Defense, after successfully completing the construction of a specialist marine facility in Portsmouth in 2012. The project team brings extensive knowledge of successfully delivering technically challenging marine infrastructure projects throughout the world where whole life cost, interface management, reliability and performance is paramount.”
Construction on site is set to start in April 2015 and is expected to be completed in October 2016.
