Update on the new Nordic Heritage Museum construction

There’s been a great deal of progress on the new Nordic Heritage Museum being built on Market Street between 26th Ave NW and 28th Ave NW. The exterior windows and zinc siding are almost finished, and streetscape work is underway. (Watch the below video to see the current progress)

From the Nordic Heritage Museum:

General contractors Kirtley-Cole have initiated the street improvement work along NW Market Street, setting the electrical light poles and performing grading for sidewalks. The Cembonit (white exterior siding from Denmark) along the east elevation is finished, and the west side is nearly complete. Grid ceilings are installed in the café, classrooms, museum store, and Cultural Resource Center. The auditorium walls are insulated and drywall and taping has begun; the folding glass wall system along the eastern edge, opening onto the sun terrace, has been installed.

Next on the agenda is zinc siding installation around the sun terrace, and fabrication and installation of the skylight, which will run the full length of the main Fjord Hall. They’ll also be working on the windows, interior wall framing, curtain wall and roofing, all of which they expect will be finished by the end of October.
