Ādisōke Fall Update
ĀDISŌKE CELEBRATES COMPLETION OF FLOORS
This fall was an exciting season for the Ādisōke project! In October, we reached a major milestone: the completion of the pouring of all five floors, also known as the “topping off” of the facility. To celebrate, an event was held at the Ādisōke project site, where the partners each signed a piece of structural steel that will be placed inside the building. You can read more about the milestone event here.
The completion of the floors wasn’t the only thing we celebrated in October. We also unveiled the official branding for the facility, as well as the new look and feel of our website, adisoke.ca. Click here to watch a video that showcases the new branding.
In November, work concluded on the vertical concrete elements, and work progressed on the installation of façade steel along the exterior of the building. The “tree-like” branch columns also started to be installed on the fifth floor.
In December, work continued on the installation of the tree-like branch columns, as well as the façade of the building. Elements of the wooden curved roof have also commenced and will continue through the winter.
In the coming weeks, work will continue on the façade of the building. This will include the installation of stonework, the bird-friendly glazing, and other elements that will make the building water-tight.

STOREY TELLING SERIES
We’re sharing the details of each space within Ādisōke, one “storey” at a time! Our recently launched “storey-telling” series showcases some of the exciting features that will be offered on each level of the facility. This fall, we published several new articles on adisoke.ca, including the central gathering space, café, black box theatre and auditorium. Be sure to check back regularly to learn more about the other spaces that will be found on each floor!
Regular construction updates are now available on the project website, as well as our Ādisōke X (formerly Twitter) page. You can also receive these short updates directly to your email inbox.

Will Ādisōke have a bird-friendly design?
The Ādisōke Project Team is committed to delivering a bird-friendly design for the new facility. We have considered the environmental context and recognize that the site is near the Ottawa River and relatively adjacent to migratory routes for birds along the waterway.
We are implementing numerous bird-friendly measures into the design and construction of the facility. To read more about these measures, please read our bird-friendly design update.
