    Port of Dover awards major contract for new Dover Marina Control Building

    In another milestone for the Port of Dover's Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development, local-Kent-based contractor WW Martin Ltd has been awarded the contract to design and build the new Dover Marina Control Building, the company said in its press release.

    With a value of £1million the contract will deliver the construction of a 300.0m2 building which is designed to facilitate all marina operations including the Bascule Bridge and the Wellington Dock Navigation Channel lock gates.

    Dave Herrod, DWDR Programme Director at the Port of Dover, said: “Design inspiration for the building has been taken from current Dover Sea Sports Centre, built within the last ten years, which is located on the opposite side of the new Wellington Dock Navigation Channel.”

    Scheduled to open in 2018, the Marina Control Building will be operational 24 hours, seven-days-a-week. The orientation of the building will allow for clear, unobstructed lines of sight over the new Marina, the existing Wellington Dock, the Bascule Bridge and lock gates to ensure efficient operation and maintain safety of the public.

    Commenting on the new Marina Control Building, Mike Darling, Director of WW Martin said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to deliver this prestigious project as part of our continued partnership with the Port of Dover”.

    The new building will consist of a reception area and control offices on the first-floor. Marina information and weather forecasts will be displayed on monitors within the reception area alongside Admiralty Charts.

    Chris Windsor, Marina Manager at the Port of Dover, said: “Dover Western Docks Revival will deliver a transformed waterfront with opportunities for a host of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants set against the backdrop of a new marina, the harbour, the iconic White Cliffs and historic castle. This will further enhance Dover’s status as a first class destination for Marina visitors and berth holders.”

    DWDR is the single biggest investment ever undertaken by the Port of Dover and will feature a new 250 berth marina which will form a key part of the redevelopment and serve as a catalyst for further regeneration.
