Local firms benefiting as Dover builds for the future
Local contractors across the Dover district are benefiting as site remediation, groundworks and demolition contracts are awarded in connection with major developments in housing, light industrial, and retail.
Dover-based companies, N T Rix Scaffolding and Dover Demolition were both recently involved with the demolition of the former Granada cinema building, and are currently working for Dover District Council on the demolition of Centurion House. Both sites are adjacent to the proposed £50m St James’s development which will provide 120,000 sq. ft. of new retail and leisure space in the heart of the town centre. The rubble and concrete from the demolition of the former Granada cinema in Dover has been crushed and screened, and is now being used on the White Cliffs Retail Park development.
Sandwich-based TW Services is also engaged on site work for the White Cliffs Retail Park which will provide 45,000 sq. ft. of new retail space along with a drive-thru restaurant in Whitfield. A recent Investor in Dover themselves, TW Services is processing soil from the site at its new aggregate and soil processing and recycling facility in Richborough.
Aylesham-based companies, Goody Demolition and Datum Groundworks have both been involved with demolition and site remediation at the former Hammill Brickworks site near Sandwich. The site is being developed by Quinn Estates for a mix of housing and light industrial and office units.
