The Proposed Project

The project is to consist of constructing concrete walkways leading into the proposed main entrances of building SH5 within CFB Shearwater and a monument adjacent to one of the walkways. The project consists of two (2) walkways on the northeast facing side of SH5 leading into the main door and office doors of the building. The monument will consist of placing two (2) sono tubes adjacent to the main entrance walkway. The walkways will require excavation of soil to allow gravel substrate to be placed under the proposed concrete, where the sono tubes will require digging of boreholes for their placement. When excavation and placement of gravel substrate is complete, the concrete walkways will be poured and sono tubes placed.
