Canada’s most iconic building, Centre Block is the main building of the Parliamentary complex in Ottawa. After the 2018 legislative session, the Gothic Revival building will close for ten years for structural upgrades, rehabilitation and restoration.

CAI was a team member with the project architects, conservation and historic preservation professionals. In its role as art specialists, we advised on best practices for relocation and preserving in place of heritage assets. CAI’s responsibilities included:
