The City of Delta has issued a request for proposals for concrete repairs to the Ladner Wharf on Chisholm Street, formerly known as the Seven Seas property.

The wharf currently stands as a concrete deck supported by precast concrete piles.

According to the city, a comprehensive assessment revealed that the concrete structure had incurred some deterioration and weathering over the years. While none of the repairs are urgently required, the concrete deck remediation needs to be completed to ensure the long-term viability of the wharf.

The scope of the project is limited to the rehabilitation and repair of the concrete and is to address structural concerns found in 12 specific areas.

All work under the repair contract is to be completed by Feb. 28, 2024.

Delta purchased the land with money provided from Port Metro Vancouver more than a decade ago, but it has yet to be developed.

The former Seven Seas fish processing plant, constructed in 1974, was demolished last year.

Council, in 2021, approved sweeping amendments to the Ladner Village Official Community Plan and have given the green light for a Ladner Waterfront Redevelopment Strategy, initiatives that came from recommendations of the Ladner Village Renewal Advisory Committee two years prior.

The plan will involve a reconfiguration and redesign of Chisholm Street, as well as a site redevelopment strategy for the Seven Seas site.

The waterfront strategy was viewed as a key element of Ladner Village revitalization.
