For over two decades, MARANT Construction has been at the forefront of building and revitalizing cultural institutions, fostering the growth and appreciation of local heritage. We are proud to share the recent successful completion of two remarkable projects: the Toronto Holocaust Museum and the Korean Cultural Centre in Ottawa.
In a significant milestone for the City of Toronto, we recently celebrated the inauguration of the Toronto Holocaust Museum, a powerful institution dedicated to Holocaust remembrance and education. Developed in collaboration with the Prosserman Jewish Community Centre and UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, this 10,000 sq. ft. museum comprises a grand atrium and four themed galleries, complemented by a dynamic learning lab designed to inspire meaningful dialogue and discussions. Our team had the privilege of leading the build-out of this remarkable institution, making a significant contribution to its establishment.
The Korean Cultural Centre, located in the heart of Ottawa’s financial district, is an essential hub for showcasing and celebrating Korean culture. Our collaboration with Pye & Richards – Temprano & Young Architects Inc. paved the way for a transformational project. It began in 2021 with the creation of modern offices and administrative spaces for the KCC team, and the resounding success of this initial effort led to our second project: revitalizing the exhibit space and offering visitors an immersive experience into the vibrant world of Korean culture.
MARANT Construction remains dedicated to fostering culture and history through construction and revitalization projects. Our team takes pride in contributing to these vital institutions and we look forward to continuing to create spaces that educate and enrich the communities we serve.
