The project includes a steel frame structure and consists of a green room, film studio, workshops and stage for performances. The updated theatre will actually feature three new spaces including the 200-seat Nancy Power Theatre; the 80-90 seat Lorne Cardinal Theatre; and a rehearsal hall.
Our work recently made it to ground. Meaning, the construction is out of the basement and we are now building above the street level. Since the theatre is being built on a very tight site, we had to utilize the lean construction principles to coordinate Just In Time delivery for materials and equipment.
A challenge our team ran into was that our original design showed we'd be building too close to the city property line. Therefore, we had to totally redesign the shoring around the property and change the entire plan for building it.Back to projects
