The Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development project, conducted by VSBW (joint venture between VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster) has achieved another CEEQUAL award for sustainability in design and construction in Civil Engineering.

The VSBW team and designers were presented with the ‘Excellent’ CEEQUAL Whole Team Interim Award at this year’s Annual Consultative Meeting (ACM) by CEEQUAL Director, Chris Broadbent.

The project’s success has come from a strong commitment to embed sustainability in the management processes from the initial planning of the project through to design and ongoing construction, said the company in its release.

Associate Director and project lead CEEQUAL Assessor Natalie Cropp, from Tony Gee and Partners, said: “We are pleased to be part of the team facilitating the revival of Dover’s Western Docks with a design that has sustainability, safety and ease of manufacturing and assembly at its core.”

“To encourage sustainability we led a number of project workshops to promote key themes, such as resource efficiency, in the development of the project’s design. The collective approach was to embed the CEEQUAL Award’s guidelines into design and enable the team to make better design decisions to achieve a more sustainable solution.”  

The first stage of DWDR is scheduled to be completed in early 2019, and the CEEQUAL assessment for the marine Civil Engineering works will now continue through to the Final Award stage.
