Restoring The Past...For A Solid Future | 905 614-0002

College Park - Exterior Cladding Repairs

Project Location: 444 Yonge Street, Toronto

Owner: GWL Realty Advisors

Project Start: Fall 2017
Project Completion: Fall 2017
Consultant: WSP Canada Inc.

 This building constructed in ~1928 features Tyndall Stone blocks, copper flashings and bronze medallions.  K.I.B. worked closely with the consultant to restore the south and half of the east elevation.  The work involved repointing, sealant replacement and Jahn Mortar Repairs which required a hand textured finish to match the original tooled appearance of the parent stone.  K.I.B. also completed several Dutchman repairs from new Tyndall stone including new pin anchors and tooled stone finish to closely match the original appearance.

 The work was completed on time and under budget all while keeping safe public access to the building and the busy sidewalk on Yonge Street.
