FRIDAY HARBOUR MARINA WALL
Redi-Rock was a key component used to transform a beautiful piece of waterfront property into Friday Harbour; home to the largest inland marina in Canada.Friday Harbour is a premier four-season resort community. Located at Big Bay Point Road and the 13th Line of Innisfil, this 600 acre resort will come equipped with an 18-hole Golf Course, a 200 acre Nature Preserve, and it’s main attraction, a 1,000 slip marina.
This 53 acre marina needed a gravity wall that could endure our harsh winter climates while also being submerged in water and that’s why they turned to Redi-Rock. The Sarjeant Company was responsible for producing and delivering all 34,553 Redi-Rock blocks that made up the marina walls. There were 12 different styles of Redi-Rock blocks required to complete this project, this included a new style of block that was created specifically to accommodate for Friday Harbour’s needs.
In order to complete what some might call an impossible deadline, two Redi-Rock crews were hired and running each at one shift a day, rotating shifts every other Saturday. With 75 Redi-Rock forms in production and each crew performing two flips a day, there were 300 Redi-Rock Blocks produced daily, totaling around 200 cubic metres of concrete poured.
This is the largest Redi-Rock project ever completed; it took three install crews 1.5 years to install.
