Port of Johnstown expansion

We were given the mandate to expand the existing Port of Johnstown facilities to accommodate more, and larger, vessels.

Within budget, we completed the mandate two months ahead of the original contract deadline. The marine work alone was completed six months ahead of schedule.

Under this mandate, we completed the following work:

  • Building a wharf of approximately 325 metres in length, consisting of 12 circular cells and 11 arches built with flat sheet piles
  • Building a steel gauge (measuring 20.45 m in diameter) to install 2,000 sheet piles
  • Building a concrete wall in front of the new wharf
  • Adding backfill inside the cells with conveyors
  • Installing marine equipment (such as bollards, fenders, ladders and wheelguards)

This mandate was mainly carried out by our own team, an approach that we take with every project. This work required three barges and two cranes, including one that was installed on a barge

Our challenge

A tight schedule

We completed the project ahead of schedule despite a tight schedule mainly due to the 20-hour work days during the winter months.
