On May 26th, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) received two design awards from the Ontario Division of the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC).
The CMHR, which is slated to open in September 2014, hosted a special presentation of two CISC Ontario Steel Design Awards of Excellence in the “projects constructed outside of Ontario” category. The event was also a celebration of the Museum and its unique and symbolic role as a champion of human rights around the world. Stuart A. Murray, Museum President & CEO accepted the awards on behalf of the Museum. Local Winnipeg architect Grant Van Iderstine received an award for his innovative structural design work on the project.
CISC is the voice for the Canadian steel construction industry, and we are extremely proud to have been involved in this unique project as it was selected out of 200 other projects. The phenomenal local collaboration between the consultants, general contractors, and ironworkers whose contributions brought this project to life has been significantly rewarding for Walters.
