Construction of Victoria's McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant along the shores of Esquimalt is about to visually ramp up as crews complete preliminary site work.
The installation of a tower crane over top of the construction site signals the upcoming switch from ground preparations and foundation concrete pours to work on the sewage treatment plant's structure.
The project is being built by Harbour Resource Partners (HRP), a consortium of firms that include AECOM Canada, Graham Infrastructure, HRD/CEI, SUEZ, Graham Capital and Michels Canada. HRP includes "top-tier global expertise in wastewater treatment plant financing, design, construction and operations coupled with local knowledge and experience gained on past CRD projects," according to a statement from the plant's future operator, the Capital Regional District (CRD).
The treatment plant is "designed to minimize visual impacts from the water and includes a multi-level green roof, mature landscaping, [an] observation deck, and multi-use education space," the CRD's project description states.
With work underway since mid-2017, the nearly $800 million project's completion is estimated for the fall of 2020. C
