seele‘s service includes the design, the production and installation of different laminated glass panes as well as commercial bronze plates, hand rails, stainless steel grids and the steel construction. First circular ornaments are carved into the commercial bronze plates. Thereafter the plates are treated in an acid bath to adapt the bronze patina. The commercial bronze plates are placed onto the steel portal frame on site in Toronto. Because of the sophisticated shape of the steel-glass construction each commercial bronze plate is unique in its geometry as well as the carving.
seele is also responsible for the removal of the old bridge and the installation of the new TEC Bridge. As of May 2017, the pre-assembly of the TEC Bridge in Toronto begins in close proximity to the final installation site. The completion is scheduled for September 2017.
