“Proscenium Architecture + Interiors designed Mountain Equipment Co-op’s Vancouver headquarters to underscore the company’s sustainability agenda, using daylighting and advanced air control systems that allow it to be 70 percent more energy efficient than a conventional office building.” -Canadian Architect Magazine
It’s getting darker and darker earlier and earlier. That meant we didn’t have to be up too late on a school night for PAI to be on-site for the focusing and commissioning of the Christ Church Cathedral bell tower lighting. Silver linings.
“Whats new is what’s old. Proscenium Architecture, working with engineers Fast + Epp, are using technology that much of west coast industrial and commercial buildings were built with for 150 years.
Mill decking, now known as Nail Laminated Timber (NLT), is not nearly as sexy as CLT; it’s basically just banging lumber together, but it is well known to engineers and building inspectors, can be done by anyone, and not limited to the one or two suppliers of CLT.
The MEC building is the biggest example of a new wave of old tech that we will be seeing a lot more of.”
A crowning feature of the current project is the addition of the highly anticipated bell-spire at the north-east corner of the Cathedral, set atop the existing elevator core. This open glass and steel structure housing four electronically controlled and custom cast bronze bells will be one of the last Architectural additions to this project.
This weekend was an exciting milestone, as the bells were lifted into place – followed by the installation of the cross. The cross is designed to compliment the stained glass and steel bell tower, and is composed of laminated sandwiches of blackened stainless steel and stained glass.
On Friday July 8th, 2016, crews lifted into place the two halves of the new Christ Church Cathedral Bell Tower.
The tower was constructed and painted offsite to take advantage of the precision assembly and coating possible in a controlled shop environment. It was constructed in two halves because the transmission of gravity loads generated by lifting the entire tower would have blown in the walls of adjacent underground parking structures.
Look forward to the arrival of the bells and cross in two weeks!
