Work on the structure of the Dep continues. The new structure supporting the centre of the building is now complete – from the new cement footing in the basement all the way up to the roof.
Now new posts and beams are being installed on the back wall to open things up and get it ready to receive the new addition.
Next came the removal of the weathered chipboard from the front facade. After 15 years of being closed up, the front of the Dépanneur came back to life. Soon the framing will be in place to receive a new wall of glass – recreating the storefront look in an homage to the past.
