Building Restoration


HERE FOR THE LIFE OF THE BUILDING.

RESTORING A BUILDING OR COMPONENT IS PART SCIENCE, PART ART. WE HAVE THE EXPERTISE TO CARRY OUT PROJECTS THAT ARE AESTHETICALLY SUCCESSFUL AND STRUCTURALLY SOUND.

Our building restoration team assesses deterioration, predicts future damage and develops remedial repair solutions to extend the life of the building, ensure safety, improve aesthetics and contribute to the building’s overall performance.

Our work covers the restoration of both structural and building envelope elements of existing buildings. Typical structural restoration projects include parking facilities, heritage buildings, high-rise buildings, post-tensioned structures, and plaza areas.  Building envelope restoration projects include cladding and windows as well as roofing repair, replacement and waterproofing.

Given our integrated, multidisciplinary approach, our restoration experts can draw upon the expertise of our structural engineering and building envelope professionals. Our shared ideas and industry-leading knowledge of construction materials, durability and sustainability contributes significantly to restoration projects.

As each restoration project is unique, our team works closely with the owner, property manager, architect and contractor to develop a strategy that meets each challenge.  Consideration is given to cost-effectiveness, timing and minimizing the disruption of operating facilities. In balancing project goals, our prime objective is to ensure a high quality, sustainable restoration is established.

Responsive Service

We understand that our clients require quick action when physical issues with their buildings arise.   We respond promptly often within hours of the initial call.  We are known for our timely service delivery and for taking the extra step to ensure customer satisfaction.

We’re dedicated to our projects and clients beyond investigations and remedial design. Our services include construction review and administration and can assist with ongoing maintenance – we’re here for the life of the project and the building.
