What's New At The Museum Construction Site?
Now that the exterior of the building is substantially complete, you are probably wondering what is happening inside the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Well, we are getting ready to open our doors to the world and exhibit fit-up is now underway. We are currently working with our partners at the Inn at the Forks to finalize the restaurant configuration plans and are also making final material selection for the retail store.
The hundreds of people who worked to construct this museum have accomplished a REMARKABLE feat of design, engineering and construction. Take a look at this time-lapse video showing a day inside the Museum with a view from our office floors:
The Museum is also the first large-scale project in Canada to use 3-D modeling as part of a Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) approach across all consultant and contractor groups. As the construction manager, PCL used VDC to successfully coordinate the efforts of approximately 40 companies across Canada, the United States, and Germany. PCL was recently recognized internationally for their work on the Museum, winning the 2014 Global Best Project Award in the Cultural Category from Engineering-News Record.
