Modernization of the Library of Parliament, a Crown-owned Heritage Building. The Library consists of a central circular reading room with heritage classified wood carved shelving on its perimeter, 2 floors of offices on in its outer ring and two underground floors of storage. Part of the collection is stacked around the reading room. This multi-year project involved a major restoration, modernization and fit-up, bringing it up to codes and latest PWGSC standards, while preserving heritage content and fabrics of this magnificent building.
