Burrard Marina upgrades

We are upgrading G and G to L docks of the Burrard Marina. The upgrade is part of an ongoing maintenance program to increase safety and user experience at the marina.

Project benefits:

  • Improved safety for marina users
  • Wider docks, improved lighting and updated construction materials
  • Updated electrical and mechanical services

The marina will remain open during the dock replacement project. However, we ask for your patience and consideration when moving in and around the Marina. The contractor will provide temporary access to docks during installation of the new floats. Please observe signs and safety precautions.

The first stage of the replacement project will commence in June 2018. This will consist of relocation of boats within the marina, mobilizing of pile driving equipment and the preparation of the old docks for removal.

The second stage includes:

  • Removal of old dock pilings
  • Removal of old docks and replacement  with new docks
  • Installation of new docks – to occur in two phases – Sections G-1, G-2 & G/L-1 delivered in early April; Sections G/L-2, G/L-3 and G/L-4 delivered in early May with installation to follow.

The third stage includes:

  • Completing the structural, electrical and mechanical connections for the new docks
  • Final dock positioning and leveling adjustments
  • Relocating members boats

We expect work to be completed by late August 2018. Project dates are subject to change due to weather and sea conditions.
