The Comox Valley Regional District has released the successful bidders and a reduced estimated project cost for the Comox Valley Sewer System Conveyance Project.

Comox Valley: Sewer System Conveyance Project tender results.  

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) has announced the selection of contractors for the construction of the Sewer Conveyance Project. Maple-Knappett joint venture and Wacor Holdings Ltd. have been chosen for their experience in delivering infrastructure solutions for regional wastewater. The District’s tender results show an award bid to Wacor Holdings Ltd for $24,010,510. The contractors’ proposals came in below the budgeted amount, allowing the CVRD to adjust the project’s projected total cost to $96 million. This figure stands $5 million lower than the approved project budget, signifying a noteworthy success in project procurement. The Sewer Conveyance Project involves the construction of a new Courtenay Pump Station, retrofits to the K’ómoks First Nation and Town of Comox Pump Stations, and the installation of more than 9 kilometers of new sewer forcemain inland and away from the foreshore where it will no longer pose a threat to the environment. Construction is scheduled to commence March 2024 and last approximately 30 months.

Campbell River: 89 new townhomes.

Seymour Pacific Homes has submitted a new subdivision and phased strata application for 89 townhomes with a future lot 2 for permanent detection pond and future seven fee simple lots. The property has an active Development Permit application that is nearing completion for the development of the strata townhomes. As proposed, the townhomes will be built in 3 phases with a total of 14 buildings from fourplexes to tenplexes. The company also recently purchased the vacant multi family site beside this property, 775 Petersen Road.

Quadra Island: Rezoning approved for a new Heriot Bay ferry berth.

The District has approved rezoning for a BC Ferries application to construct a new ferry berth within a 2.35-hectare portion of Crown foreshore immediately north of the existing ferry berth at Heriot Bay. The project will require the replacement of marine infrastructure that is nearing the end of its service life, as well as to accommodate the deployment of a new and larger vessel on the Quadra Island to Cortes Island route when the current vessel is retired and replaced in 2026. The 2.35-hectare site will accommodate a new access trestle, pedestrian waiting room, pontoon and dolphins.
