Challenge
At the roof level on the east façade of the structure there is a curving brick band that has been designated by the City of Toronto to have high heritage value. Preserving the brick band presented major structural challenges, since much of the foundation wall and ground-floor structure below had to be removed and reconstructed.
Solution
Entuitive worked closely with the Heritage Preservation Consultant to design a façade retention shoring system to preserve this masonry. The design of this shoring also had to be carefully coordinated with the Steel Erector, Foundation Underpinning Contractor, and Concrete Contractor to establish a design that would not impact the construction sequence for the restoration and addition work.
