CFB Small Boat Jetties

Construction of three small boat jetties located in Esquimalt Harbour at Dockyard is entering its fourth and final phase. Once completed in 2021, the small boat floats will be the new home for the eight Orca-class and auxiliary vessels operated by the Queen’s Harbour Master. We have just finished pouring Jetty 3 anchor wall pile support. At high tide, the wall is half submerged underwater.

David Foster Walkway at The Pearl

We are excited to see the first concrete pour for the David Foster Walkway at The Pearl! The David Foster Walkway is a meandering route that leads through the unique historical areas and developments along the waterfront of Victoria. Go TEAM Farmer!

Marriott Nanaimo

Great work TEAM Farmer! After years of planning the Courtyard Marriot in Nanaimo is finally well on its way. We have completed the concrete work for the 3 cores and the structural steel and concrete topping on Q-deck is full steam ahead. Holdfast is working on level 5 and moving fast! We are very proud of our team and their accomplishments and look forward to the next one. Big shout out to all our trades and suppliers!

Day of Mourning – April 28th

On April 28th, 2021 at 10:30am, we would like to encourage everyone to pause for a moment of silence to honor workers who have died, became injured or became ill while working on their job.  You can review the attached Tool Box Talk with your crews (or yourself) before the moment of silence.

You can also join WorkSafeBC at 10:30am for the 2021 Day of Mourning Ceremony recognizing those we’ve lost.

Hospitality Positions:

Marshalls – Fun, easy and important job! These are volunteers that will help us ensure we have the safest covid free construction site around. One of the Marshalls will take temperatures for volunteers to fill out their covid questionnaires before entry. Each shift will have two Covid Marshalls that will monitor the site keeping high touch surfaces clean and ensuring that proper PPE is available and worn by all volunteers.

Site Liaisons – As the safety video has moved to an online platform. The Site Liaisons now will just be responsible to ensure that the first shift everyone knows: where the Muster station is, where the washrooms are, what time lunch is being served, etc. They will also let everyone know of any task hazarded are highlighted and then get the volunteers to where they will be working.

Check In/Out – The check-in team is responsible to check in volunteers and ensuring they have completed their safety video. They will make sure everyone has a HeroWork shirt, a name tag and that they get directed to the liaisons. They also will be responsible for collecting any donations made in person towards the project or for the T-shirts.

Food/Snack Masters – This project is being fully catered by Salvation Army ARC so the food and snack master position will be in charge of ensure that our volunteers have prepackaged snacks, water bottles and coffee available and will set up for lunch and then clean up afterwards.
Looking forward to have you out on this incredible project!!
