The Proposed project 

Saam Towage are proposing to construct a marine operations facility to support tug towage activity in and around the Vancouver Harbour. The proposed works include the installation of a single-storey wood-frame modular building with a footprint of approximately 2,650 square feet (~250 square metres) and a paved loading area for delivery trucks. The building will be constructed off-site in modules, trucked to site, then erected by crane onto a timber platform foundation. The structure will replace the temporary facility currently being used by Saam Towage. Shallow sub-grade excavations will be required for the installation of a gravel pad underneath the building foundations, underground utilities and the new loading bay. These areas will be backfilled with new engineered fill. Additional site preparation works include vegetation clearing and landscaping. Parking and access will be via the adjacent lot, to the east of the site. The works are anticipated to take approximately three months to complete.
