Heritage Building Facade Preservation

Project Category: 
Heritage Preservation
Vancouver, BC

This challenging project involved preserving and supporting the facade of a 5-storey heritage building in the heart of downtown Vancouver, BC.  During demolition, there could be no impact to any surrounding sidewalks, roads or businesses.  With extensive planning and scheduling with other contractors, owners and surrounding businesses, the project was completed on time and on budget, and most importantly without incident.  The facade support system allowed the construction contractor to excavate 80 ft. below street level during construction of the new building's basement and parkade.
