Protective shedding is also installed around other construction projects not associated with the Façade Inspection Safety Program, such as the current restoration of St. Paul’s Chapel, to protect pedestrians and surrounding property from potential falling debris associated with those construction projects.

All protective shedding is removed once the projects have been completed and passed inspection.
