Capilano Library Repairs

In 2017, an inspection of the flooring resulted in the discovery of water damage to the entrance area at Capilano Library. Due to the scope and timing of the work, the repairs were scheduled to take place in phases. Some work, including construction of temporary flooring and installation of temporary awning, took place in October 2017.
