The Canadian Museum for Human Rights and its builders and designers are being presented with two design awards by the Ontario Division of the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction.

The Design Awards of Excellence highlight the remarkable collaboration that has taken place between the general contractor, designers, consultants and sub-trades during the construction of the CMHR. The institute noted that more than 5,400 tonnes of steel was also used in building the museum, which is slated to open in September.

PCL Constructors is the general contractor for the project and Smith Carter is the executive architect. Smith Carter architect Grant Van Iderstine will also receive an award for his innovative structural design work on the project.

The awards will be presented at an event to be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the west end of the Esplanade Riel Pedestrian Bridge. A reception will follow at the Chez Sophie Restaurant on the bridge.

The CISC is the voice for the steel construction industry in Canada.
