DMA Group secures multi-million Fire Compliance contract at Port of Dover
DMA Group, the Kent-based property service specialist celebrating its 220th anniversary this year, has secured a major Fire Compliance project worth in excess of £2 million at the Port of Dover. The project will see DMA Group undertaking repairs and improvements as part of the Ports duties to maintain fire precautions within approximately 65 buildings across the Port, managed and delivered by the resident onsite team.
This project is part of the multi-year, Port-wide mechanical & electrical (M&E) maintenance and projects framework which commenced in January 2022. That agreement was cemented by both parties signing a Framework Charter which confirmed shared collaborative commitments to work together to continuously improve and raise the standards of building maintenance and project delivery across the Port.
Continued confidence in the quality of DMA’s service delivery led to its scope expanding to cover general building maintenance, fabric repairs, and specialist compliance services.
Steve McGregor, Group MD at DMA Group, said: “Securing this project is testament to the transparent, collaborative efforts of both organisations and because we are both focussed on finding ways to work smarter together. We’re extremely proud to be contributing to making the Port’s buildings work better.”
Adrian Baker, the project manager from Port of Dover, comments: “The Port of Dover with DMA Group are working closely together to deliver this important project.”
