On August 29, 2016 Squamish Terminals welcomed its first vessel to the rebuilt west berth. The new $30 million dock is constructed entirely of non-combustible material - steel and concrete. About 120 high capacity, heavy steel pipe piles were used to support all the structures, and the deck was constructed out of high capacity, low permeable concrete for durability, and designed for heavier modern terminal equipment. The main deck is about 135 metres long and 33 metres wide. A gangway landing platform was added to expand the length of the deck by 35 metres for more efficient operations. Ground improvements were also made to bring the structure up to seismic standards, substantially improving the reliability of Squamish Terminals in the event of an earthquake.
