Overview: The Table Rock Welcome Centre is considered the heart of Niagara Parks in which millions of visitors pass through each year. Ritestart had the opportunity to construct three new exterior canopies – robust structures capable of withstanding excessive snow and ice loads. Canopies were constructed at the Grand Hall Entrance directly adjacent to the Falls, the Lower Restaurant Entrance and another at the North side of the Bridge of Flowers.
The construction of canopies required concrete foundations extending down to bedrock, complex structural steel designs, masonry works, copper cladding and roofing systems, snow melt systems, as well as electrical and minor mechanical works.
