The New International Arrivals Hall was born of the need to provide a visually
welcoming space with 24 hour passenger assistance.
Features of the project include
a “Log Jam” lighting arrangement as you exit the customs hall. In
front of the rock wall feature you will see canoes traveling down a river made
of LED lighting and drywall bulkheads.
Preplanning was key in organizing this
multi-phased project to work around the nearly 12 million YVR International Arrival
passengers who would walk through this space during construction.
A work platform
and hoarding was constructed in such a way as to allow passengers to move through
the space with little or no disruption. This allowed Bridge to relocate services
and rough in lighting while the passengers traveled beneath the space.
