Queensboro Marine Equipment Ltd. | New Shared Dock for 702 and 706 Alderside Rd
On February 9, 2023, a project permit was issued to Queensboro Marine Equipment Ltd. (the Applicant), on behalf of the upland owners, to construct a new shared dock at 702 and 706 Alderside Rd, Port Moody, British Columbia. The project is on federal lands and waters managed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.
The project was approved subject to 40 permit conditions the Applicant must meet to ensure the project does not result in significant adverse environmental effects.
About the project
The shared dock includes the following features:
- A 85. 3 metre long and 3.05 metre wide walkway supported by 14 steel piles that runs from an existing land-side retaining wall
- A 56.7 square-metre t-shaped dock connected to the walkway by a 12.2 metre by 3.05 metre ramp
- Four, 254 millimetre diameter steel piles will be installed adjacent to the floating dock and will secure the dock allowing the dock to move vertically with the tides.
The dock and walkway are aluminum prefabricated pieces and will have SunWalk decking to provide good light penetration and low impacts to the surrounding environment.
The piles will be installed by vibratory and/or drop hammer techniques. Construction will take approximately two weeks to complete. The project components that require a barge for construction, e.g., pile installation, will occur during high tide. The project components that require beach access, e.g., pier installation, will occur during low tide.
