ABOUT VANCOUVER PILE DRIVING

Vancouver Pile Driving Ltd., a local family owned and operated company, is one of the largest marine general contractors in Canada.  Since 1913, Vanpile has built many of the major marine facilities along the coastline and inland waters of British Columbia, Canada.  We specialize in pile driving, dredging and shoreline protection, as well as the construction of bridges, ship berths, ferry terminals, floating concrete structures, piers, breakwaters, marinas, environmental remediation, dam upgrades, submarine cables and outfalls.

Our culture is built around our people and their experience.  Over the years, innovation, diversity, and experience have continued to build our reputation as an award winning group of professionals and craftsmen capable of meeting and exceeding the physical and schedule challenges of unique projects. 


We have a staff of approximately 40 providing support to our field operations which employs a labour force of approximately 100 personnel.  Our staff consists of many long term employees who bring tremendous knowledge and abilities to all projects.  We have a solid reputation as a leader in our industry, where it is not uncommon to have clients request our employees on projects.  It is with these dedicated employees that Vanpile has been successful completing challenging projects while building a highly regarded and dedicated labour force.

Our marine base in Vancouver Harbour provides support to our fleet of marine derricks, scows, cranes, and workboats.  The capacity of our fleet of marine derricks is one of the largest in Western Canada with crawler cranes rated up to 350 tons.

Among Vanpile's growing list of capabilities, we have an extremely active Small Contracts Division providing long term maintenance and repair services around the Vancouver Harbour, along the Fraser River and up and down the Coast of British Columbia.

In addition to our completely outfitted welding and mechanical shops, our North Vancouver yard (at the foot of Brooksbank Avenue) is also equipped with a graving dock (drydock) which is used to precast concrete caissons for marine terminals and to construct floating concrete structures for marinas and breakwaters.
