Vancouver company to build new wharf

Chase has moved one step closer to having a brand new wharf at Memorial Park.

Chase has moved one step closer to having a brand new wharf at Memorial Park.

The village council announced they have chosen one of the six different proposals that were submitted to them. These submissions included a cost estimate  as well as a new wharf design, says Joni Heinrich, chief administrative officer.

Heavy Metal Marine Ltd., a company out of Vancouver, was chosen to complete the project.

The village would not disclose the estimated cost of the project at this time, with Heinrich explaining they are still in the middle of negotiations.

A letter was sent to Adam’s Lake Mill asking for a donation of  lumber, she said.a

If this is received, the village will be able to knock some money off the total estimated cost of the wharf.

The names of  the other companies who submitted proposals were not released at this time, but Heinrich did say that four of the six companies were local, situated between Kamloops and Sicamous.

Heinrich says the cost was not the only factor in choosing which company to go with; the design was also an important deciding point.

The village received a grant from the federal government earlier this year to help with the project.

The chosen design of the new wharf will be released as soon as negotiations are finalized.
