What a difference a week can make! YUL’s Conservation & Exhibition Services’ main treatment space at 344 Winchester seems to gotten some serious attention since our last visit just a week ago. The construction crews started installing the flooring; installed the light fixtures and electrical cord reels in the ceiling; and put some of the built-in cabinetry in place for the clean up areas at either end of the room. Just 109 left days till we move in!!

Cabinets were put up for the clean-up sink areas on west wall. There are lots of drawers and shelves to store small tools and lab glassware that will be used every day.
Another bank of cabinets and a sink on the east wall of the main treatment area.
Flooring and lighting is in place now in the main treatment room. This shot shows the northeast corner, which will be the new home of collections conservation & housing staff.
