Proposed design for Alloway Hall at The Museum of Manitoba, by Stantec Architecture and Engineering
Stantec Architecture and Engineering has been selected to lead the design for the expansion and renewal of Alloway Hall in the Manitoba Centennial Centre, The Manitoba Museum’s travelling and temporary exhibition space by the Project’s Steering Committee (comprised of The Manitoba Museum, The Manitoba Centennial Centre Corporation [MCCC] and the Province of Manitoba). MCCC was approached by The Manitoba Museum to expand the existing facility to meet their growing and future needs. The expansion and renewal of Alloway Hall is the first of a number of major capital projects planned for The Manitoba Museum.
Stantec is presently engaging the Museum, MCCC, and other key stakeholders in a comprehensive consultative process to shape and inform the project’s design to complement and build upon its 1960s Modernist campus.
Stantec is an active catalyst in Winnipeg’s urban renaissance, recently relocating its four outlying offices into one Stantec-designed space downtown, called Centrepoint.
The expansion and renovation to Alloway Hall is vital to The Manitoba Museum’s future plans, enabling the Museum to draw a wider audience with larger and more ambitious visiting exhibitions, which often require larger spaces, while also supporting additional programming.
Bockstael Construction Ltd. has also been selected by the Steering Committee to serve as the Project’s Construction Manager. Bockstael Construction is honoured to add the Alloway Hall Expansion and Renewal Project to the list of iconic structures it has played a role in over its 103 years of continuous operation in Manitoba.
