July 09, 2013 - 10:12 AM
By early fall, a new waterfront building will be in place to house the North Westside Fire Rescue fire boat and mobile marine water supply.
The Regional District has awarded a contract for the detailed design and construction of the new boathouse, which will be easily accessed in the southern portion of Killiney Beach Community Park.
Regional District staff has spent much of the past year documenting and making the applications for the boathouse, obtaining the necessary environmental approvals and waterfront licenses from the Province. Once the last of these permissions was received in late February, staff began laying out the criteria required for designing and building the structure. Regional Parks Services also gave its approval to locate the boathouse in a section of the community park.
Burton Marine and Pile Driving Incorporated has been selected as the contractor following a Request for Proposal process conducted in accordance with the Regional District Purchasing Policy. The contract includes a full two year warranty on all materials and work performed in construction of the boathouse.
Work is scheduled to begin on construction in early September with substantial completion expected by the first week of October.
