Centre Block demolition work reaches a pinnacle (four, to be exact)
Project planners are currently running tests and doing mock-ups to ensure Centre Block is stabilized before excavations begin underneath the 100-year-old building.
The Centre Block building and the growing excavation pit being dug in front of it are pictured on Aug. 29. Project planners are gearing up to begin excavations underneath the building itself in order to complete seismic upgrades and connect to the underground Parliament Welcome Centre.
