Georgia Pacific Dock Removal

On behalf of Georgia Pacific Gypsum Holdings ULC, Tetra Tech Canada Inc. proposes to remove a fire damaged dock structure at the Georgia Pacific Gypsum Holdings ULC site in Surrey, BC. The dock is comprised of a wharf head 60 metres by 16 metres connected to a timber trestle 30 metres by 6 metres wide with several steel mooring piles riverward of the dock. The dock was damaged by fire the week of June 18, 2021. 

The project consists of: 

  • installing a curtain around the entire area to contain floating debris during the length of the project 
  • removing the top of the superstructure, e.g., decking, with a clam bucket and crane on a spud barge 
  • removing piles and the superstructure using a vibratory hammer 
  • removing floating debris 
  • placing debris on a flat scow for disposal offsite  

All creosote timber material will be removed from the site via barge, transferred to trucks, and taken to an approved government facility for disposal. All equipment will have spill containment kits.  

The works are anticipated to be complete within 30 days, during standard construction hours. All works will be completed during the window of least risk for the Fraser River.
