Centre Block

Centre Block, (1920) Parliament Hill, Ottawa

As a consultant to Heritage Grade Craig is the senior conservator for all interior wood work and cabinetry, as well as doors and metal windows. This is currently the largest restoration project underway in Canada and is expected to take 10 years to completion.

 

 This is a partial view of the House of Commons.

 

This is one of Craig’s as-found drawings showing how the original teak and ebony floors in the House of Commons and Senate Chamber were constructed.

 

Craig has been involved in many projects at the Centre Block starting with the restoration of the south façade in the mid-1990s, condition survey and recommendations for the House of Commons lobby laylight in 2015, condition survey and recommendations for the Peace Tower entrance doors in 2014, the restoration of the stained glass windows in the Memorial Chambre in 2001.

 

This is one of Craig’s as-found details for the original steel windows in the Vent Towers.
