2014 Award of Excellence – New Work on a Heritage Site

Fort Henry Discovery Centre Building and Heritage Impact Assessment (Kingston, ON)

The new interpretation centre at Fort Henry was preceded by a comprehensive heritage impact study and consultations. The result – the Discovery Centre – is elegantly integrated with minimal impact to the Fort Henry National Historic landscape and the larger UNESCO Rideau Canal World Heritage Site.

The dynamic Centre provides barrier-free access to the Fort and offers engaging interpretive displays and expanded programming to increase visitor-ship and to enhance the experience.
