We have finally begun construction of the museum. Preliminary internal demolition is well underway. Tenders for the first part of the construction have closed and we expect to award subcontracts by mid-March. At this time, we expect phase one of the construction should be complete by February 2013.
Edmonton photographer Hugh Lee has graciously undertaken to chronicle the progress of our museum's construction. He will be taking photos on an ongoing basis throughout the construction, and we will display them in this gallery. They may also be viewed on Hugh's Flickr page. UCAMA is grateful to Hugh for agreeing to take on this historical record of the Pendennis/Lodge Hotel's metamorphosis into our new museum.
