Burgeo Search and Rescue Floating Dock Construction

Burgeo SAR Floating dock construction

The proposed project involves the removal of an existing floating dock, armourstone and asphalt  cover and minor excavation of underlying soils adjacent to the existing SAR Operations building in Burgeo NL. A new treated timber cribwork crib-block will be added in the location of the removed asphalt cover and soil and a new floating dock connected to the crib-block. Additional floating docks will also be added to the existing configuration immediately adjacent the proposed crib-block and floating dock. The project will involve the use of heavy equipment such as excavators, dump trucks as well as manual labour.
