Client: Winnipeg River Heritage Museum
Location: Winnipeg River, MB
Completion: To be completed 2019
Project Details: Parkwest Projects is acting as the Construction Manager under a CCDC5B for the construction of the Winnipeg River Heritage Museum. The project involves demolition of the old museum facility destroyed by fire and the construction of two buildings interconnected by a raised wood platform along the shore of the Winnipeg River. One building will act as the museum offices, archives, storage and exhibit space. The other building is an exhibit building built around a ferry used for crossing the Winnipeg River prior to any bridges in the area. The Ferry was temporarily moved while the new foundations were constructed. The ferry was then moved into place and the building structure erected around it.
