Seal Cove Coast Guard Base Helicopter Pad Replacement

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard are undertaking a project to replace the helicopter landing pad at the Seal Cove Coast Guard Base. This will involve removing the existing concrete slab, and installing the new concrete slab or asphalt pavement. Construction activities may also include improving the gravel sub-base, rebar placement, and installing the formwork. Replacing the helicopter landing pad will improve the overall infrastructure on the Coast Guard base, provide safer flight operations for the CCG crews and passengers, and improve the overall safety of the site operators (Real Property, Canadian Coast Guard, Royal Canadian Mounted Police).

The work involves the like-for-like replacement of existing structures that are currently in poor condition. As a result, no new ground will be disturbed. The existing helicopter pad is located on the north east side of the base, 20 meters away from the water. The helicopter pad has a footprint of 1,000m2. No in-water works is anticipated for this project.

Construction is anticipating to occur January to February 2022. Project dates and duration will be dependent on the tender process. Key equipment and machinery that will be used on site may include a jackhammer, a crane, a concrete or asphalt truck, and a flat bed truck.
