Slipway Construction, Lourdes, Newfoundland

DFO, Small Craft Harbour intends to complete a slipway construction project in Lourdes, Newfoundland. The scope of work for this project includes the construction of a new slipway measuring 40 metres by 40 metres. The slipway consists of timber runners and decking, steel beams, steel pile caps and concrete filled steel pipe piles seated in bedrock. Two (2) rock groynes measuring 30 metres in length will be installed, one on each side of the slipway, to reduce the wave/tidal action on the beach. This project also includes blasting of a ridge offshore.
