Subcontractors hired for the job, both concrete and electrical,
were another 28 per cent of the cost of the project.
Dean worked with local contractors wherever possible
and proposed hiring people from the Chippewas of
Nawash Unceded First Nation; two personnel were hired
from the First Nation.
Construction began in the fall of 2018, and was completed
in the spring of 2019, when the new cast-in-place
concrete cope was poured on top of the sheet piles. The
concrete deck was poured on top of the granular fill
between the walls and the ancillary safety ladders, then
fenders and electrical components were installed.
Other works on the site for the 2018 season included
dredging, the installation of a precast concrete panel boat
ramp and the installation of an eight-metre-wide scour
apron, which consisted of 200 to 300 mm fractured
stones placed around the sheet pile structure.
Cape Croker Park has been up and running again
for two years, and with the help of Dean Construction,
Stantec Consulting and Nucor Skyline, the wharf on
Sydney Bay is safely usable for all to enjoy for years
The new pier at Cape Croker Park will provide
years of enjoyment for all who visit
