Dundee Central Waterfront: Contract 4 | CEEQUAL

Project Summary

The transformation of Dundee’s waterfront reached a major milestone at the end of February 2016 with the opening to the public of a new road and pavement network constructed by Sir Robert McAlpine. The opening brings to a conclusion a series of three projects with a combined total value of £27.8 million undertaken by the company over four years as part of the Waterfront scheme. The Contract 4 project involved a range of works within Slessor Gardens, the large avenue of open space created at the heart of the Central Waterfront area, extending from the Caird Hall complex towards the River Tay.

The team’s responsible approach saw the award of a second CEEQUAL Excellent award for the project within the space of 12 months. The award recognises exceptional performance on infrastructure, landscaping and planting works for a major new civic space completed as part of the Waterfront scheme. A variety of opportunities for local operatives and companies were provided, and achieved exceptional levels of recycling, with only 2 tonnes of inert waste sent to landfill from the more than 45,000 tonnes generated from the works.

Other Dundee City Council projects benefited from the recycling strategy, including the preparation of a platform for a new recycling centre, the infilling of Discovery Dock, and the formation of an access ramp to Seabraes Bridge.
