The Proposed Project

Carlson Construction Group proposes to conduct structural wharf repairs and installation of new gantry cranes at their Vito Shipyard located at 9497 River Road, Delta. The structural repairs at the wharf include replacement of the sheet pile wall and installation of a new geotube, which is a geotextile scour protection structure that prevents shoreline erosion from underneath the wharf. Structural repairs to the wharf include the installation of steel support piles and repairs to timber components. Gantry cranes are proposed to be installed inside the existing fabrication building and require foundation upgrades including installation of micropiles, steel columns, and rail beams on top of the new foundation structure. The works are proposed to be conducted by both barge and from the upland. All in water-works will be conducted within fish least risk windows for the Fraser River.
