New CFAC Week 92: Changing colours

August 16, 2016

NewCFAC_Week90 NewCFAC_Week90 The existing Centre for Arts and Culture, located in the west end of Edmonton is known for one very distinct feature: it's orange. Of course the programs within that building are known for much greater things—the quality of education, the talented and hard-working graduates that emerge, the brilliant performances and showcases put on by students—but as far as the physical building goes, its orangeness is hard to miss. 

The new CFAC on the City Centre Campus will also be recognizable for a bright hue, albeit in a much for subtle way. It will feature bright green accents, both inside and out, including green endcap panels that were recently installed on the south side of the building. With the majority of the building rendered in clear and black glass, with a few green glass accents, the bright panels are a fun complement to an otherwise sophisticated exterior. This pop of colour makes the building stand out just as much as its predecessor, but in a decidedly more nuanced way, a perfect fit amongst the architectural distinction of its new downtown neighbourhood.

Last week, crews also worked on electrical and mechanical rough-ins in the pedway, as well as stair framing in the main atrium.

Fast Facts:

  • Average manpower for the week was 325 workers
