A new seawall had to be constructed for the new Prince Edward Island Convention Centre, which is under way on partially reclaimed land in Charlottetown.

The new $17.7-million facility is expected to boost tourism to the Island and is the centrepiece of a major re-development on Queen’s Wharf in the city. It is being built on land formerly occupied by the Canadian Coast Guard, and will be attached to the Delta Prince Edward Hotel.

Design is by William Chandler Architect, with engineering consultants SCL Engineering (structural), Richardson Associates (electrical), MCA Consultants (mechanical.) Stantec provided geotechnical and environmental consulting, and Harland Associates designed the seawall.

The 36,000 sq. ft. complex will be able to host 3,000 people, with dining for 1,500 people. It includes a ballroom, meeting rooms, offices and underground parking.
