Vancouver Pile Driving Graving Dock Rehabilitation

Vancouver Pile Driving Ltd. proposes to replace the walls and expand their graving dock facility located on the North side of Burrard Inlet adjacent to their operations facility. 

The proposed project works include: 

Installation of upland sheet pile walls and tie backs outside of the existing Graving Dock footprint to create the expanded area 

  • Upland excavation of the expanded footprint 
  • Installation of a temporary cofferdam around the Graving Dock gate expansion area 
  • Demolition of the existing Graving Dock sheet pile, concrete base slab and access gate 
  • Reconstruction of the access gate and reinstatement of the adjacent sheet pile walls  
  • Cast-in-place concrete pour of the Graving Dock's expanded concrete base slab 
  • Installation of subtidal riprap armouring and decommissioning of the temporary cofferdam   

The Project will be undertaken primarily from the land, with marine works limited to the southern boundary of the graving dock. Marine works will be completed in isolation from the marine environment by use of a temporary cofferdam.
