Hatch Dillon Wins West Side Modernization Project

Work on the Port Saint John’s $205 million West Side Modernization Project is entering the next phase, with award of the design/engineering contract to joint venture firm Hatch Dillon.

The joint venture team includes a collaboration with Baird & Associates, Conquest Engineering and Vickerman & Associates.

Since last summer’s Federal-Provincial funding announcement, we at Port Saint John have been working diligently behind the scenes to line up the start of the project. With the awarding of the design engineering contract to Hatch Dillon everyone will begin to see the signs of the project starting up in the coming weeks and months,” said Jim Quinn, President & CEO of Port Saint John.

Projects of this scale and complexity happening in Saint John do not come along everyday and we look forward to working with the Port team on the West Side Modernization Project,” said Darcy Harris, Project Manager for Hatch Dillon JV.

Our strategic partnership combining Dillon Consulting’s local presence, experience and insight with Hatch’s world-renowned mega-project delivery expertise will provide innovative solutions for this project creating a positive impact for the port and the community at large,” said Lorne Flowers, P.Eng., Engineering and Design Team Lead, Hatch Dillon JV.

The West Side Modernization Project is funded by a three-way partnership between the Government of Canada, the Government of New Brunswick and Port Saint John with each partner contributing one-third.

Overall, the project includes revitalization of the container terminal and its berths along with the main channel deepening over the next seven years.
