Museum balcony project

The existing balcony on the north face Gertrude Lawson House, the home of West Vancouver Museum, has been covered by plastic sheeting for several years. The building has been in need of restoration, and the plastic sheeting was required to protect the interior from leaks.

A restoration project is underway in October 2016 that will restore the enclosed balcony with copper sheeting. This work will provide protection from the elements and is expected to add further character and appeal to this well-loved heritage site.
