Greater Victoria Harbour Authority (GVHA) and the City of Victoria have awarded Salish Sea Industrial Services as the contractor for the joint $1.8-million Ship Point repair project.
In 2017, a detailed structural analysis of Ship Point was undertaken, and it was determined that the structure needed critical repair work; a portion of the original pier was closed at that time.
Work began in October 2018 and is anticipated to wrap up by March 2019. The repair work will replace the original timber piling pier structure built in 1949 with new steel pilings. Repairs will focus only on the original pier structure and are in line with the City of Victoria’s master-planning process for the site.
The old pier and north apron of Ship Point form the original structure; the pier extension was constructed in 1979. GVHA owns 65 per cent of the pier, with 35 per cent ownership belonging to the City of Victoria.
Project updates will be provided throughout the construction period.
