Hercules SLR advances the Halifax Central Library

Asset 1-100

Hercules SLR was an integral part of building the Halifax Central Library.

The Halifax Central Library is a modern and innovative landmark located in downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia. It is a space for people to learn, gather, and explore new ideas. The library features a range of services, including a recording studio, a performance space, and even a green roof.
However, building such a unique and complex structure requires a team effort, and many different companies were involved in the project. One of those companies was Hercules SLR.

Here at Hercules SLR, we specialize in industrial rigging and equipment services. We offer a range of products and services, including lifting slings, hoists, and fall protection equipment. Our services are used in a wide variety of industries, from construction to mining and aerospace.

Hercules SLR was brought in to help with the construction of the Halifax Central Library. Our industry-leading expertise in industrial rigging was essential in the installation of the building’s unique architectural features, such as the curved wooden beams that make up the library’s ceiling.
The wooden beams used in the Halifax Central Library were sourced from a variety of locations, including the United States and Europe. They were then transported to Halifax and installed using specialized equipment and techniques provided by Hercules SLR.
In addition to the wooden beams, Hercules SLR also provided rigging services for the installation of the library’s exterior cladding. The cladding is made up of glass panels and anodized aluminum fins that give the building its distinctive appearance.

Throughout the construction process, Hercules SLR worked closely with the project team to ensure that all safety regulations were followed and that the installation was completed to the highest standards. We also provided ongoing maintenance and inspection services to ensure the continued safety and functionality of the building’s rigging and equipment.
The Halifax Central Library is a testament to the creativity and innovation that can be achieved through collaboration and hard work. The contributions of companies like Hercules SLR were instrumental in bringing this unique building to life.

We are so proud that Hercules SLR played an integral role in the construction of the Halifax Central Library. By providing specialized rigging and equipment services that were essential in the installation of the building’s unique architectural features, we helped a community dream come to fruition. Our expertise and dedication ensured that the installation was completed safely and to the highest standards, contributing to the success of this landmark project.
