The large format sintered ceramic facades are lightweight yet durable enough to defy graffiti, scratches, weather, and the test of time. NORR was tasked to complete renovations for the Canada Science and Technology Museum for Canada’s sesquicentennial celebrations. As you approach the building, the Ceramitex provides a beautiful white façade that effortlessly amalgamates with the intricate angles of the building while doubling as a 250-foot long projection screen. Not only did NORR revitalize this well-known Ottawa institution, but it has also achieved the appearance of a national museum.
