Balcony Demolition and Building Refit at SH517 - Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Esquimalt

The Department of National Defence (DND) has proposed a project. Building SH571 is currently the home of the Pacific Fleet Club, however the building occupancy is proposed to change from a congregation hall to office space. A Structural and Re-purposing study was completed and identified that exterior balconies will need to be demolished in order to maintain the structural integrity of the building. The scope of work comprises demolition of the East and West Balconies and associated concrete repair and remediation work. The second phase of the project will be the Building Refit work, which will include re-roofing, new windows, fire suppression requirements, egress requirements etc.

Latest update

October 11, 2022 – The public comment period on the project is closed. The Department of National Defence is considering comments received to help inform its determination on whether the carrying out of the project is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
