Construction Notice – Noise Variance Extension (Feb 3, 2022)Posted On: Thursday February 3, 2022
February 3, 2022
This letter is to notify residents that the City of Vancouver has granted an extension to the Variance of Construction Hours for the New St Paul’s Hospital project located at 1002 Station Street. PCL Construction as the General Contractor will be managing and overseeing this project, with Darrin Joss (PCL) as the Site General Superintendent.
This noise variance notification is for:
- Monday-Friday: February 7, 2022 – March 11, 2022 – 6:00am to 7:30am & 8:00pm to 6:00am
- Friday to Saturday: February 12, 2022 – March 12 – 8:00pm to 10:00am
- This excludes all Sundays and Statutory Holidays
PCL takes considerable effort while organizing construction activities to ensure the neighbourhood endures the least amount of impact. During these hours, the loading of excavated materials into the trucks will occur within the New St. Paul’s Hospital site, approximately 500ft from the nearest residential area, which is a reasonable distance to eliminate noise.
Noise levels from this work have been tested and documented and will not be disruptive to the nearby residents. In addition, truck routes have been carefully and strategically selected to eliminate the use of backup alarms. Gates 5 and 5a, off National Street at the Southwest corner of the site, will be used for these night-time operations to further reduce noise for the residential area.
Hauling materials during these hours will have the following benefits to the public:
- Reduced congestion on the City streets during daytime hours (particularly on Station Street & Main Street)
- Reduced carbon emissions by hauling outside of peak traffic hours (less idling on City streets, increased fuel efficiency from uninterrupted traffic flow)
- Reduce the overall duration of hauling days for the project.
Should you have any questions or concerns, use the Project Hotline at (604) 335-2669 to leave a message and PCL will return your message within 24 hours.
