BC Place was deflated last May in order to start construction on the new soft retractable dome.
This morning members of the media were given the chance to check in on the progress that is being made at the topless stadium.
The cranes are in place to get the centre cap hoisted – that is where the scoreboard will hang, suspended from cables at the centre of the ring. In the spring of 2011 the roof support cables will be tensioned and they will begin to install the fabric rings that will expand and contract to open and close the roof.
Construction will be complete in 2011 and until that time, the BC Lions will be playing at Empire Field. The BC Lions will then host the Grey Cup on their new home turf under the open air dome of BC Place in November 2011.
