Brant Street Pier contruction report—July 5, 2011
City Council has approved a budget increase to $15.07 million to focus on finishing the Brant Street Pier project with a new contractor, estimating a delivery date in 2013.
The city will issue a tender call to the prequalified contractors in mid-July, with a tender report back to council for approval in October. If City Council approves the next steps in the approval process, the pier is expected to be finished in summer 2013.
The budget for the first phase of the pier, with the original contractor, was $9.27 million. The additional nearly $5.8 million will be for the second phase of the pier construction, including construction with the new contractor and all other costs. As reported to the city’s Community Services Committee on June 22, 2011, the funding would come from the city’s capital purpose reserve fund.
City staff estimate that removing the pier would cost $15.5 million, including covering costs so far, demolition costs and repaying other government funding.
