Francois Forester Site Visit

BMT was contracted to review the construction of a ferry vessel.

The Requirement

BMT was contracted by BC Ministry of Transportation to review the construction of a new ferry vessel the Francois Forrester in support of a commercial partner operating this new ferry on behalf of the Ministry of Transportation.


BMT acted as technical authority for the Ministry including verifying that both quality and progress were reported accurately by their partner acting as a tier 0 consultant for the ministry. The vessel itself was constructed in sections and transported to the inland lake where it operates today.


On-site inspections were carried out at various stages of construction to ensure that the new vessel met the requirements and that stated scheduling and progress had been completed.

As customer representative, all of the customer's concerns throughout the construction phase and those related to vessel certification and final submissions for approvals were managed accordingly thereby resulting in a smooth launch of the vessel into service.
