The project at the Port of Dover for the Multi Storey Car Park Roof repairs were for the waterproofing of the upper levels A and B and the installation of new fascia panels and roof edge protection systems.
The MSCP’s were taken out of use in 2015 and substantially dismantled in 2017. The structures incorporate the Passenger Terminal Building East and West. MSCP A comprises one split-level deck of steel encased concrete construction, with an approximate floor area per level of 1,000 m2. MSCP B comprises one split-level deck of composite steel/concrete construction, with each level having an approximate floor area of 1,120 m2.
The MSCPs are situated over the operational Passenger Terminal Building located in the Eastern Docks. Careful planning and consideration has been given to ensure disruption to the Port and Passengers is kept to a minimum as the Eastern Docks ferry terminal operates 24 hours a day, 364 days a year, with a ferry departure on average every 30 minutes.
As part of the project we installed new high-level fascia panels around MSCP A, including box gutters and associated downpipes, new roof edge protection around MSCP A and between levels 1A and 2A, the overcladding of high level fascia panels to MSCP B, the repainting of exposed high-level steelwork to MSCP B and new high-level fascia panels to the north elevation of the link bridge.
