"We're also working with the Manitoba chapter of the Performing Arts Lodges to accom- modate various artists' housing needs." The entrance to Muse Flats features an original 40-foot mural entitled "Imagined Lines and Movement and Spaces of Rest along Colony Creek" by Dee Barsy, an Indigenous artist in Winnipeg. "The black and red lines in the piece represent an old creek bed that runs through the neighbourhood under- neath all the buildings," Read says. Erik Miller, project manager for Bockstael Construction Limited, says the team ensured measures were put into place to allow work to continue safely during a pandemic, adapting to changes in public health orders, and still have the project come in on time. One part of the work he is particu- larly proud of is the execution of the exterior EiFS system on the build- ing. "We used multiple FR ACO lifts for access. Normally these climbers are used in temperatures above zero, but the supplier was able to create a custom engineered solution to help us work through the winter of 2019." He adds that the collaboration of the project team helped make things run smoothly throughout the project. "It's a real team effort."
