Cape Croker Park gets updated larger wharf for recreational vehicles

Parallel sheet pile wall utilizing whalers and tiebacks encompass exiting wharf for rehabilitation at the Cape Croker Park in Ontario, Canada.

Along the shores of the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada sits Cape Croker Park, owned and operated by the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation. Cape Croker is home to a large recreational facility, including campsites and a sheltered harbor with dockage for recreational vessels of all sizes.

The current dock, consisting of aging timbers, was rotting and needed to be replaced. The needs of the community were growing and this was the opportune time to build a larger dock that could accommodate more vessels.

The new design consisted of two parallel sheet pile walls encapsulating an existing, L-shaped, concrete capped timber crib wharf. Double channel walers and threaded tie rods completed the connection between the new sheet pile walls.

Dean Construction Co. Ltd. of Windsor, Ontario was awarded the contract and secured the supply of AZ 26-700 steel sheet piling from Nucor Skyline’s Brossard, Quebec office.

The AZ 26-700 sheet piles were manufactured in Luxembourg by ArcelorMittal, a partner of Nucor Skyline in 40’ lengths. The sheet piles were then coated on both sides with a polyamine epoxy to help prevent corrosion. The walls were driven from spud barges using a combination of a Dawson hydraulic impact hammer and HPSI 300 and 500 vibratory hammers.
