F&D Scene Changes – Tours are FULL
September 22, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
For over 35 years F&D Scene Changes Ltd. has been internationally celebrated for our talent in transforming our clients’ ideas into reality. Our projects range from fabricating scenery for theatre, television, and film to museum exhibits, commercial and retail, theme park elements, trade show and retail displays. We have fabricated and installed our products throughout North America and internationally for various clients such as Universal Studios California, Disney (Orlando, California, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shanghai), The Centre Theatre Group in Los Angeles, CrossIron Mills Mall in Balzac, AB The Glenbow Museum, The Calgary Zoo and many venues throughout Canada and the United States.
F&D is located in the Dominion Bridge Building, a 60,000 square foot facility on the edge of downtown Calgary, Alberta. In 1923 the building was used for Iron Work and later an additional steel shop, plate shop and ‘Blue Whale’ building was added. Today, this building is only one of two surviving metal factories from before WWI in the city. This original steel foundry includes a high central bay, overhead rail for cranes, and shed style wings. The shop is home to multiple disciplines running the gamut of metal fabrication, carpentry, fiberglass, an enormous scenic drop shop, a sewing and soft goods area, an industrial and scenic paint booth and our design/drafting department.
During the DOYYC, we will offer guided tours of our day-to-day operations and facilities located in the historic Dominion Bridge Building. Our guided tours are approximately 30-40 minutes in length. First tour is at 10 am and they will run every half hour with the last tour at 4 pm. Registration is required as space is limited.
