On October 25, 2017, Fraser River Pile & Dredge GP (FRPD) was recognized as a standout in B.C.'s construction industry, and one of only 15 Gold Award winners at the Vancouver Regional Construction Association's (VRCA) 29th Annual Awards of Excellence in Vancouver, B.C. "VRCA’s Awards of Excellence showcase the best of the best,“ said Fiona Famulak, President of the VRCA. “BC’s construction industry is the most progressive in the country and the Awards allow us to recognize the collaboration, innovation and professionalism that our members bring to their projects - the complex, state-of-the-art infrastructure that we use every day," she continued.
Sarah Clark, Mike Bevan-Pritchard, Brent Bevan-Pritchard, and Mike Scott were on hand to accept the Gold Award in the category of "General Contractors - $20 to $45 Million" on behalf of FRPD, for the recently completed Squamish Terminals - Berth 1 Reconstruction project. Also in attendance were Harald Kullman (Advisian), Kim Stegeman-Lowe (Squamish Terminals), Robert Crompton (Advisian), and Karen Denis (Squamish Terminals)
As Canada's largest Marine & Infrastructure, Land Foundations and Dredging contractor, FRPD was thrilled to have been contracted for the project by Squamish Terminals in 2015, after fire had destroyed their Berth 1 dock. The project scope included demolition, construction & densification, and installation of steel and concrete replacements and was successfully completed in August, 2016.
Kim Stegeman-Lowe, President, Squamish Terminals had this to say about the project, "Thank you to our marine contractor Fraser River Pile & Dredge (FRPD), and our marine engineer and project manager Advisian - WorleyParsons Group for ensuring this complex dock rebuild was on-time and on budget. The great cooperation between FRPD and Advisian, as well as the support and patience of our employees, customers, partners, and community was the key to completing the dock and opening it back up to operation in 10 months."
