The majority of the wood decking has now been replaced. The structural members have been found to be in solid shape and have been left in their original places. On January 13th the new copper sheeting installation began.

Each piece of copper is being attached to its adjoining piece of copper and then soldered in place. The first pieces being installed are on the narrow deck just under the clock faces and on the soffit.

The first pieces of new copper that have been installed in the area under the South clock face (King Street side) may be visible from the street. 

Workers will continue to work throughout the winter as weather permits.
