AM-TECH’s work hours are flexible; we are willing to operate after-hours to allow daytime services to continue through construction. See how AM-TECH completed a relocation and fit-up of this iconic museum while retaining its cultural integrity and constructing a connection tunnel to the Bank of Canada – its original location.
Formerly known as Canada’s Currency Museum, the new facility is located beside the Bank of Canada and connected through its underground conference centre. The museum is home to over 100 000 currency-related artifacts from around the world including counterfeit money, banknotes, dies, numismatic medals, and an archive of over 8 500 books, pamphlets, and catalogues dating to the Middle Ages. Consequently, AM-TECH took great pride in completing a delicate project in a live, operational facility where preserving the historical integrity of the rooms and artifacts was one of our top priorities.
AM-TECH’s number one priority is ensuring the safety of both workers and citizens that will be affected by our projects; consequently, we efficiently replaced the museum’s entire fire alarm system, phasing the work in a way that allowed the new system to be commissioned as the old devices were uninstalled. All work was done at night to prevent any disruptions to the museum’s daytime operations.
