Construction Milestone for V&A Dundee

Completion of a coffer dam in the River Tay at the site of V&A Museum of Design Dundee marks a major milestone in the £80.11 million construction project, Royal BAM Group announced.

The V&A Dundee building will protrude out into the River Tay.

To enable the land reclamation work to progress, BAM Construction has constructed a cofferdam in the river.

The cofferdam is effectively a temporary watertight structure built around the protruding part of the V&A Dundee.

This allows the area enclosed by the cofferdam to have the water pumped out, creating a dry working environment for the major land reclamation work to proceed.

The cofferdam was completed at the end of May, ahead of the June 1 date where the summer embargo of works on the river begins to avoid any impact on the harbor seal breeding season.

Work continues to progress on program with the infill works to the cofferdam and the foundations to the building now underway.

The first tower crane will be erected on site in July with the second and third following in August.
