New Langara Science building taking shape
The new Science and Technology building at Langara College is progressing quickly. The steel structure is in the process of being erected and the cantilever support structure will be removed in a couple of weeks. The building is targeting to open its doors to students in June 2016.
West First Theatre Centre Takes Shape
The West First Theatre Centre is taking shape with construction moving forward at an impressive pace. The walls around the studio theatre space are being built, giving us the first hints at what the newest performance venue in Vancouver will feel like. Framing is being installed for the balcony which will overlook the triple height lobby, while the rehearsal and office spaces are well under way including a new bank of windows on the north side which will maximize daylight.
Artist Selected for Christ Church Bell Spire
Proscenium has been working with Christ Church Cathedral on restoring their heritage cathedral over the last decade. The current phase of work sees the restoration of the roof along with the construction of a 1oo foot tall bell spire clad in stained glass. The bell spire is one step closer to reality with the selection of Canadian artist, Sarah Hall and her stained glass design, “Welcoming Light.”
Work is slated to begin this spring with completion in time for Christmas 2015.
