Trench at the Museum of Human Rights

January 18, 2012

It has been a few months in the works, but we were finally able to ship the trench ordered for the new Museum of Human Rights site in Winnipeg, Manitoba. When I went to see the installation, I was lucky enough to be given a tour of the new facility and it is without question, one of the most impressive sites in our city. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights aims to “explore the subject of human rights, with special but not exclusive reference to Canada, in order to enhance the public’s understanding of human rights, to promote respect for others, and to encourage reflection and dialogue.”

The trench project went great and the contractor was quick in complimenting us on the service. Installation went very smoothly. We used a crane to place the pieces down with ease using the swift lift hooks provided by barkman.

After all is said and done, the trenches will end up being below the surface, so that I can’t go and see the product when I visit the museum, but I am glad knowing that the work we did will help in a small way to make the museum as grand as it will undoubtedly be.
