Tsawwassen Container Examination Facility

Delta iPort

The Tsawwassen Container Examination Facility (TCEF) is located on a 11.4 acre site within the Deltaport Logistics Centre. The TCEF facility will be a dual purpose complex, which will be used by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) for the inspection of shipping containers imported through the Deltaport Port of Vancouver terminal and as a general purpose warehouse facility. The facility will be composed of a warehouse and a two storey office complex, totalling 114,809 sq.ft. The project includes construction of a storage/parking area of approximately 3.5 acres, which will include a separate area for container storage. The facility will be consistent with the Canada Customs Act which requires that adequate facilities be provided for the proper detention and examination of imported goods.

Delta iPort and Great West Life (“GWL”) have contracted TFNWM to complete one of their largest projects at the Deltaport Logistics Centre. This project with Delta iPort and GWL Realty Advisors Inc. is on behalf of Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan Realty to develop 57 acres with a total of 1.2 million sq. ft. of warehouse facilities. The initial site preparation for such a major project consisted of bringing in roughly 1,250,000 cubic yards of structural fill and preload material. The target opening date is summer 2018.
