Major Step Forward for Dover

Having committed itself to transforming the Western Docks with a new cargo terminal, the Port of Dover has taken another major step forward following the signing of an agreement with GRAHAM, a company involved in the construction, asset management and project investment sectors.

Procured under EU Official Journal regulations over the last 11 months, the GRAHAM contract will focus on all the marine civil engineering design and construction costings, including the quays, pier walls and reclamation required to deliver this new piece of land within the port.

Tim Waggott, Chief Executive of Port of Dover, said: “Dover Western Docks Revival is a key part of our vision to create the best port in the world for the benefit of our customers, the local community and the UK economy.”


The team from GRAHAM has a strong reputation for collaborative working and this will give the opportunity for Kent companies to tender for as many parts of the project as they feel able to deliver. We will be holding a series of joint ‘meet the buyer’ events later in the year.”

Malcolm Loader, Business Development Director – Ports at GRAHAM, said: “We are looking forward to working in collaboration with the Port of Dover team to develop the optimum design solutions for the infrastructure elements of the Dover Western Dock.”

“This project gives us the opportunity to bring to the fore the experience we have gained from working on projects for numerous ports across the UK.”

In order to deliver the Dover Western Docks Revival project, which will have around 200 construction workers on site during its peak, the Port recognizes the need for a robust transport management plan, and intends to bring as much of the construction materials in by sea as possible.
