When: [25 October 2022] at [1200] [PST]

Where: [Canadian Forces Base, Esquimalt)

The VANCOUVER ISLAND NR Sub-Group will hold a Lunch and Learn event on Tuesday, Oct 25, 2022, at Canadian Forces Base, Esquimalt from 1200-1400 hrs, A237 Miramichi room Dockyard (double click for map). Defence construction corporation will provide a presentation followed by tour of the A/B jetty. Lunch will be provided.

The aim of the jetty project is to demolish the existing A and B jetties at CFB Esquimalt’s. The A/B Jetty project supports Canada’s National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy, which will deliver modern ships to the Royal Canadian Navy over the next 30 years. It will be home to several of the Canadian-built vessels, including the new Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship and Joint Support Ship. This $743-million project to replace aging 70-year-old jetties consists of three contracts for the design, demolition, and construction of the new jetty. Work includes extending the utility corridor, dredging the seabed, demolishing B Jetty, preparing the site and constructing the new B Jetty portion. The new A/B jetties will be constructed on pipe piles up to 100 metres long that will be anchored into underlying bedrock. A robust structural system will tie the piles together using heavy-duty reinforced concrete beams and decking, and both are designed to support all classes of present and proposed Canadian Navy vessels.
