Seal Cove Coast Guard Base Helicopter Pad Replacement

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard are undertaking a project to upgrade the helicopter landing pad area at the Seal Cove Coast Guard Base. This will involve removing sections of the existing concrete and asphalt topping slabs, and installing the new sections of concrete landing pads, as well as asphalt access paths. Construction activities may also include improving the gravel sub-base, rebar placement, and installing formwork. The upgrade of the helicopter landing pad area will improve the overall infrastructure at the Coast Guard base, provide safer flight operations for the CCG crews and passengers, and improve the overall safety of the site operators (Real Property, Canadian Coast Guard, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, etc).


The work involves upgrading the current helipad area by paving the areas where the surface is uneven, and also creating 5 new helicopter landing pads where the Coast Guard helicopters can take off and land. The helicopter pad area is located on the North-East side of the Base, and the work will occur approximately 15m from the water. The total construction footprint of the project will be approximately 4,200m2. No in-water works is anticipated for this project.


Construction is anticipated to occur from April to May 2022. Project dates and duration will be dependent on the tender process. Key equipment and machinery that will be used on site may include a jackhammer, a small crane, a concrete or asphalt truck, and a flat bed truck.
