CCW | Christ Church Cathedral Site Tour

April 26, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Event registration will open on April 11th, 2016.

We are very excited to announce that we are having a bonus Canadian Construction Women event on Tuesday April 26th, 2016 – a site tour of Christ Church Cathedral!

Christ Church Cathedral is located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, the church of the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster. It was built in the Gothic style and dedicated in 1895.

The Christ Church Cathedral seismic  upgrade project began in 2015 and includes a new standing seam zinc  roof, kitchen renovation and expansion  and installation of a new glazed bell  tower for an estimatedconstruction  cost of $6 million. The scaffold structure  that encases the entire church will  provide protection from the elements during removal of the existing roof – you  can find out more about the scaffold  system here. The scaffold also contains  an Apollo Beam Gantry crane that has  been created specifically for this  project.

On our tour of the Cathedral, we will be  accessing the scaffold that towers above  the cathedral roof works – please be aware that the tour may not be suitable for those who are not comfortable with heights.



5.30pm – 6pm – Registration and Site Orientation (please meet in the alley behind the church at Burrard and West Georgia)

6pm – 7pm – Site Tour

7pm – 8.30pm – Dinner (location TBA)


Please note that you are required to have personal protective equipment – CSA approved safety boots, hard hat and high visibility vest – to access this active construction site. Anyone not in posession of these items at event registration will not be permitted to attend the tour.
