Shipbuilding renaissance generates new office buildingNovember 26, 2015 12:00 pm
NORTH VANCOUVER — Seaspan is moving forward with plans to build a new office on the North Vancouver waterfront as the firm ramps up production and welcomes more than 1,300 new shipbuilding and office staff over the next five years.
The District of North Vancouver voted to approve permits for the shipbuilding and tug company earlier this month to build the four-storey, 84,000-square-foot office at the end of Pemberton Avenue adjacent to the shipbuilding yard.
Since Seaspan won part of the federal shipbuilding procurement contract in 2011, its North Shore operations have been growing from a “facilities standpoint, and certainly from a people standpoint,” said CEO Jonathan Whitworth.
