Centerm Expansion Project

Vancouver, BC

Design and construction of a container terminal expansion and improvements to surrounding port road infrastructure for the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority

This critical trade-enabling project will help the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority meet anticipated near-term demand for containers imported and exported through the Port of Vancouver.

The Centerm Expansion Project includes the South Shore Access Project and involves a reconfiguration and 15% expansion of the Centerm marine terminal footprint, creation of a new overpass and significant improvements to port roadways along the south shore of Burrard Inlet.

The design-build project located within the shared traditional territories of the Musqueam Indian Band, Squamish Nation and Tsleil-Waututh Nation is being constructed by Centennial Expansion Partners, a joint venture partnership between Jacob Bros, Dragados Canada Inc., and Fraser River Pile and Dredge (GP) Inc.

First Nations have distinct rights and interests in developments that potentially impact the lands and waters of their traditional lands, including sharing in social and economic benefits associated with project construction.

Jacob Bros, through the Centennial Expansion Partners joint venture, provided a First Nations Liaison to the project to work directly with representatives of the three First Nations to ensure each Nation shared in the economic benefits of the project through employment, training and subcontract opportunities and, participation and involvement in archaeological monitoring and development of chance find protocols.
