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 travelling down a river made of LED lighting and drywall bulkheads.
Preplanning was key in organizing this multi-phase 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 Electric to relocate services and rough-in lighting while the passengers traveled beneath the space.
