Second stage for Friday Harbour
CANADA: Having successfully completed phase one, Poralu Marine has now been contracted to undertake the second stage of a 1,000 slip marina project on Lake Simcoe in Ontario. Friday Harbour Resort is destined to become a new all-year-round upmarket residential and visitor destination.
The company, which has been instrumental in introducing the concept of aluminium dock systems to North America, designed and built the phase one Friday Harbour marina system at its factory in Saint-Eustache, Quebec and completed all in record time to enable the facility to open in spring 2018. It offers multi-location commercial marina slips and private residential docking amenities along a boardwalk.
Stephen Fischer, Poralu Marine sales manager in Ontario, summed up the challenges and the result. “As this [Friday Harbour] is located on a lake that freezes over in winter, we had many constraints for this project considering we had to start delivering in February, the heart of winter. Meeting these challenges required us to demonstrate our technical ingenuity while allowing design to prevail. After all, Friday Harbour is a beautiful higher end development. With a Poralu programme that found a way to match engineered solutions with aesthetically pleasing high-end products, this marina will certainly increase in value over time,” he said.
