CFB Esquimalt Major Capital Projects Overview

Tim has a DND background where he spent 22 years as a specialist military officer (diving, EOD, and mine warfare) plus 4 years in the UXO industry with ongoing ties and responsibilities in UXO support to DND.

Since 2012, he has been with Defence Construction Canada in Victoria, BC as a Capital Construction Liaison Officer for Real Property Operations (RPOps) at CFB Esquimalt, Project Management Service Line.  This work involves liaison between RP Ops, DND Project Management Office, DCC, Base Stakeholders and Contractors for all the Base Capital Projects in CFB Esquimalt.

 

The Department of National Defence (DND) is continuing its efforts to transform the Dockyard waterfront at CFB Esquimalt into a modern site for the 21st century. The existing “A” and “B” Jetties are over 70 years old, originally built in the World War II era, and are well beyond their service life. The condition of these jetties is such that they need to be replaced to provide structurally sound berthing facilities for Canada’s current and future Pacific Naval Fleet.

DND is proposing to replace the existing “A” and “B” Jetties in Constance Cove at CFB Esquimalt and, at the same time, to undertake work to remove and remediate contaminated areas of the harbor seabed and foreshore fill within Esquimalt Harbour.  A&B Project is slated for 2025 completion at a ROM of $750 million ($350M for B Jetty being done first and $400M for A Jetty) in 2015 dollars

 

The A/B Jetty Project supports Canada’s National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy that will deliver modern ships to the Royal Canadian Navy over the next 30 years. The proposed A/B Jetty will be home to several of these Canadian-built vessels, including the new Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship (now called Harry deWolf Class) and the Joint Support Ship.

Industrial activity and releases from storm sewers, surface runoff, and groundwater discharges have impacted harbor sediments.  DND has conducted investigations within Esquimalt Harbour to identify areas for remediation, which will considerably reduce the exposure of marine life to contaminated sediments and provide a healthier habitat for marine communities.
