VolkerFitzpatrick has been appointed by the Port of Dover to deliver the paving, utilities and infrastructure contract for the Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development.

During the 12 month program, VolkerFitzpatrick will be working alongside VSBW, a joint venture between VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster, the dredging and marine structures’ contractor, whilst they complete the new marine infrastructure and reclamation for the first stage of DWDR.

Dave Herrod, DWDR Program Director, Port of Dover, 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.”

Chris Evans, Managing Director of VolkerFitzpatrick’s civil division, added: “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.”

According to the VolkerFitzpatrick’s latest release, completion of the first and second stage of DWDR will allow the port to complete its aim of a dedicated ferry terminal in the Eastern Docks and a transformed waterfront for Dover.
