Scope of Work

Completed: 2018

Owner: Community Marine Concepts Ltd.

The Victoria International Marina is a world-class luxury yacht centre, located in the beautiful Victoria Harbour. This is the first dedicated superyacht complex on the west coast, and one of only a handful in the world. Their full-service 28 slip marina opened to yachts in 2018 with facilities, style, and security technology unsurpassed by any marina in the world. Though the marina will primarily serve as a moorage point for 65 to 175-foot long mega-yachts, the marina also includes two 7,000-square-foot buildings. One building is an “amenity and flex space” and the other building is the high-quality restaurant “Boom & Batten“. Both are accessible to the public.

Houle supplied the complete security convenience and privacy package needed to operate the marina. This includes full CCTV, access control, intrusion monitoring, fire alarm monitoring, and marina-wide Wi-Fi on Docks and in Amenity Building running on a fibre backbone. Unlike other security projects, this was more than just a CCTV and access control supply and install and a Wi-Fi project. The Houle Operations Centre (HOC) now provides fully managed access control for the marina. For the Victoria International Marina, a managed access control solution means that all security needs are provided by the HOC. The HOC provides ongoing day-to-day support and monitoring, which includes active card database management and virtual concierge services.
