Construction Update

Posted on May 18, 2018


Construction on the Rosehaven Atrium will begin on May 23rd with the scaffolding being installed.

The Atrium project will include the removal of the existing skylights and the construction of a new sloped roof system. The new roof will be enclosed but with new tubular daylighting devices that will ensure the space is still bright and airy. As well, new lighting will be installed in several areas throughout the Atrium to help brighten the space.

We will be doing everything possible to ensure activities and programming will not be impacted too much by working with several departments and the contractors.
