Project Location: 300 North Service Road, Grimsby Ontario
Owner: The Regional Municipality of Niagara
Project Start: Spring 2013
Project Completion: Fall 2013
Consultant: Parsons Brinkerhoff Halsall Inc.
This landmark building as you enter the Niagara Region from the GTA required significant masonry restoration to renew the building appearance. K.I.B. competitively tendered and was awarded this project. Work included removal and replacement of 137,000 bricks, removal, cleaning and resetting of concrete coping stones, and 100% sealant replacement. Significant repairs to the backup structure included air barrier repairs, new stainless steel ties, and new through wall flashings. K.I.B. significantly improved building performance by installing stainless steel drip deflectors at strategic locations to properly shed water and protect the masonry.
K.I.B. allocated significant resources and work force in order to meet the tight deadlines laid out by the Owner.
