Fraserwood Project:

Sewell’s Marina Boathouse

Horseshoe Bay, BC

The Boathouse at Sewell’s Landing stands out as the show piece of this substantial development. The boathouse location, in proximity to the other buildings, meant that it was only accessible from the water side of the development. Fabricated components, hardware, and equipment were barged to site. Bents were assembled on the barge prior to being lifted into place.
