RTS: April Construction Update

Post 15 of 61

Interior colours and finishes, Ryerson Theatre SchoolMost of the ductwork is now in place, and nearly all of the electrical has been roughed in; most drywall has been installed as well. The interior materials and finishes have been selected (see photo), and the performance spring-floor has been selected and tendered. Work is underway on the complex process of installing the ceiling pipe grid, which will support the new lighting systems; this purpose-built structure must be fitted in “just so” to accommodate the necessary ductwork without interfering with the stage lights that will be attached to it. The move-in dates have been revised and are now scheduled for Thanksgiving weekend to allow for better preparation and planning for the transition to the new space.
