New CFAC Week 83: Staying on top of things

June 14, 2016

NewCFAC_Week83 NewCFAC_Week83 Crews at the new Centre for Arts and Culture stayed on top of things this past week—between ceiling framing and roof construction and finishing, crews spent much of their time near the top of the building. 

The ceiling in the main atrium is a work in progress. Visitors to the site in recent weeks will have seen that the entire atrium is full of scaffolding, allowing crews to work on ceiling framing now, and move on to electrical and mechanical rough-ins and painting afterward. All ceiling activities will be completed consecutively while the scaffolding is still up, in order to use time most efficiently. In the meantime, the smaller galleria atrium offers a glimpse of what the finished main atrium will look like: because of its smaller size, finishing the ceiling there was a much faster process, allowing the scaffolding to be removed earlier.  

Even higher up, traffic cap installation was performed on the roof of the building. This process provides a finished surface on the roof that not only protects it but provides a safe surface to walk on when roof maintenance is required. Finally, the high-level work wraps up with pedway roofing nearing completion.

Fast Facts:

  • Average manpower for the week was 319 workers
  • 14,793 m3 of concrete has been poured to date.
