GNW provides production services and scenic fabrication for industrial and cultural projects.

Great Northern Way Scene Shop is an accomplished scene shop based in Vancouver, British Columbia, adept at custom and scenic wood working, metal fabrication (steel and aluminum), and scenic painting (faux finishing, murals, and scenic drops).

6,500 square foot production facility with an additional 6,000 square foot adjacent warehouse.

Our skills range from making one-of-a-kind items for retail to large public art projects. We build sets for theatre, opera, ballet and film – and more.

If you can imagine it, we can build it.

Our work has been seen across Canada, the USA, Europe, and Australia. We have created exhibits, museum and gallery displays, and custom private events and millwork.

Our values and dedication to community define what we do and why we do it.
