Friday Harbour is a four season condominium resort described by the developers as “A destination marina surrounded by an eventful marina side village. A 200 acre nature preserve framing a Doug Carrick designed golf course. Modern, imaginative homes at the lake — just an hour from Toronto.”

The condominiums range from $359,000.00 to in excess of $3,000,000.00. One of the primary hubs of the resort is the Marina itself referred to as the Harbour Master building.

J+B Engineering was contacted by the coordinating Site Architect, and after several meetings we were commissioned to provide the engineering drawings for the petroleum installation. The installation has a two stage approach. The first stage being the installation of 8 gasoline and 2 diesel dispensing points situated around a pier. The product itself is contained within a remote three compartment above ground storage tank. The harbor master building is situated in the middle of the pier for optimum viewing of all product dispensing.

The second stage of this contract is to provide larger underground product capacity. This phase will likely take place in a few years as the Marina continues to develop.

J+B Engineering provided complete mechanical and electrical engineering drawings for the phase one petroleum installation. Services included recommendation and selection of the required equipment, coordination of site lighting, conduit, and hazardous area classifications. J+B Engineering also applied for and received all Government approvals for the petroleum installation.

Upon completion of the engineering package and obtaining the necessary approvals J+B Engineering added in the tender process, providing tender documentation, lists of qualified contractors, as well as review of the submitted bids and recommendation of the winning Contractor.

Under a separate Contract with the actual developer of the resort J+B Engineering provided Contract and Construction support from project specific CCDC 2 modification to the end of the Construction phase as well as Government sign off approvals.
