About the project

Foreshore Environmental, on behalf of the upland owners of 4737 Strathcona Road, North Vancouver, proposes to install a new dock in the water lot fronting 4737 Strathcona Road, North Vancouver. The project will consist of:

  • Remove a derelict wooden structure (i.e., a two to four-wooden pile structure) situated on the proposed dock design alignment
  • Install an approximately 18 metre-long by 1.2 metre-wide pier starting at the edge of the upland property and positioned perpendicular to the shoreline. The pier will be supported by:
    • A concrete abutment on top of the existing seawall
    • A pair of 355 millimetres (mm) diameter steel pipe piles driven on the foreshore at approximately 1.0m chart datum (CD) using a vibratory hammer
  • Install an approximately 18 metre-long by 1.2 metre-wide ramp connecting the pier to the float
  • Install an approximately 10-meter-long and 3-meter-wide float anchored by two (2) precast concrete lock blocks and two (2) rock pins
