Marina Projects Limited welcomes a new collaboration with MDL

4 April 2023

During this four-year service contract MDL can draw on Marina Projects vast areas of expertise and specialisms within the marina industry.

Marina Developments Limited (MDL) owns and operates nineteen marinas, predominantly along the south coast of the UK. In addition, MDL also manages through an agent two wholly owned subsidiary businesses; Hythe Marina Village Ltd and Ocean Village Marina Management Company Ltd, both have a portfolio of real estate and marina assets.

Marina Projects is an industry leading marina consultant based in the UK with a diverse range of experience in the master planning, marina design, project management, consenting and operational management of marina facilities.

A four-year term group wide agreement has been agreed between MDL and Marina Projects for the provision of licensing support, project management and technical support for MDL’s extensive marina dredging and capital works programmes. The agreement covers the full portfolio of marina sites, including the sites at Hythe and Ocean Village (Southampton).

The Marina Projects specialists assigned to the daily tasks will be supported by the wider team’s expertise within the UK office, including marina design, construction, licensing, infrastructure installation, as well as maintenance dredging and infrastructure maintenance.

Two clearly defined workstreams have been established, each with their own but related term contract agreement:

  • Support for the delivery of a dredging campaign over a four-year period, to include licensing and project management activities
  • Programme/project management support for the delivery of the annual capital works programme, including lock shutdowns, infrastructure audit and pontoon replacement projects across the various marina developments

The framework agreement with MDL provides both parties with long-term benefits and assures MDL of continuity of service and project delivery.

Furthermore, it demonstrates the breadth of skills and experience that Marina Projects has at its disposal and the benefits of applying that support to an organisation with an extensive marina portfolio such as MDL.

Mike Ward, Managing Director, Marina Projects

We are delighted to form a long-term partnership with Marina Projects. The new agreement enhances MDL’s marine capabilities and builds agile resilience into our operating structure.

As a marina operator, Marina Projects understands the unique requirements of our sector, contributing strategies and solutions which enable MDL to focus on providing a high-quality service to its customers.
