CCC Bell Tower on the Daily Hive
We are very excited about the completion of the newest MEC store in Edmonton!
The MEC South Edmonton Common store received final occupancy on Thursday and it’s looking great.
Meanwhile, the store in the Brewery District (relocation of the downtown store),
is moving along quickly and is starting to really take shape.
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.
Christ Church Cathedral – bell ringing test Monday August 22, 2016
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.
