National Gallery of Canada
What we did:
The National Gallery of Canada makes its home in a grand, light-filled structure of glass and granite and when they called on J. McBride to replace that glass we were honored. Our job was to replace all the glass in the massive towers and skylights without disrupting the public and protecting priceless works of art. Due to the shape and significance of the building it made replacing the glass a complex job and in order to do this we took added precautions and built our own custom lift system to handle all the glass in a safe and efficient manner.
This job was completed on time and on budget without any disruptions to the gallery operations and no priceless works of art were damaged.
