CCGC – Wharf Repairs, Point Edward,
Connors Diving Services has been awarded
the Coast Guard College Wharf Repair contract tendered by Public
Works and Government Services Canada. The College is located in
Point Edward, on the old naval base near Sydney, Nova Scotia.
The George L. Hopkins waterfront
training centre has a boat storage building equipped with a 16-ton
overhead crane, a second building housing classrooms and instructors'
offices. In addition, it has 200 meters of wharf frontage and 30
meters of floating wharves, which require extensive repairs.
The purpose of this project is to effect repairs to the support
structure of the wharf at the Coast Guard College. Demolition and
repairs to the steel "H" piles along with new timber sheathing,
fenders and ladders are just part of the yearlong project.
Work is scheduled to begin
in March of 2004 and has a completion date of February 2, 2005.
The job will employ seven full time divers along with a portion
of the work being sub-contracted. Connors Diving Services looks
forward to the opportunity and challenge of restoring part of Canada’s
premier Coast Guard facilities.
