Ralmax Rock Bay Ferry Dock Installation

Ralmax Properties Ltd. requests a new lease from Transport Canada for a dock facility to allow for moorage of the Victoria Harbour Ferries fleet. The proposed facility is planned to be constructed in a water lot adjacent to 525 Bay St, Rock Bay in Victoria, British Columbia. 
The marine facility is proposed to include a dock structure consisting of three floats, approximately 32 metres long by 2 metres wide. In addition, seven fingers will be installed, 6 being approximately 7 metres in length and 2 metres in width and 1 being 22 metres in length and 2 metres in width. The floats will be constructed off-site and floated to the Project location. The floats will be secured with 18 steel piles 0.3 metres in diameter installed via vibratory hammer from a barge.
