Consultant Firm Hired for Ferry Terminal Redevelopment

CBCL Limited of Halifax has been awarded the contract to provide engineering services for Phase 1 redevelopment of the Yarmouth International Ferry Terminal

Tuesday, April 30, 2019 - Yarmouth, N.S. –  With work set to begin next month, the Town of Yarmouth has awarded the contract for the Prime Consultant for Phase 1 of the Yarmouth Ferry Terminal Redevelopment. Following a recommendation at a recent council meeting, a motion was passed to hire CBCL Limited, an Engineering and Environmental, Design and Consulting firm based in Halifax.

After issuing a request for proposals (RFP) last month, the Town of Yarmouth Engineering Department received several submissions from interested firms. Engineering staff and members of the Ferry Terminal Project Steering Committee undertook an exhaustive evaluation process.  The committee established a team to assist with evaluation questions, point scoring, and recommendations.  Submissions were tested based on a pre-defined point scoring system included in the RFP package. After much discussion and individual scoring, the evaluation team recommended CBCL .

John Flewelling, President and CEO says “CBCL is pleased to have been selected to provide engineering services for the Yarmouth Ferry Terminal Upgrade Project.  We are excited to be working with the Town of Yarmouth and project stake holders to generate the best value for the investments being made at the terminal facilities.”

CBCL will be on the ground in Yarmouth soon. Initial work will include detailed design, testing, and inspections. Work ranges from measurements and visual inspections to destructive testing with major construction and demolition beginning in the fall of 2019. All work for the project is slated for completion by the fall of 2021.

A Project Kick-Off Event takes place on Friday, May 3rd at 2:30pm at the Ferry Terminal. The event  will be hosted by Colin Fraser, Member of Parliament for West Nova, the Honourable Zach Churchill, MLA for Yarmouth; Pam Mood, Mayor, Town of Yarmouth; Daniel Allen, Councillor, Municipality of the District of Yarmouth, and Danny Muise, Deputy Warden, Municipality of the District of Argyle. All are welcome to attend.
