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 is 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. 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 worked for a year and a half to complete the project. 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 currently the largest Redi-Rock project ever completed to date.
