In 1996 we were engaged to prepare a Conservation Study for the Halifax Club.  Our report indicated that there were urgent repairs required to be undertaken immediately and proposed a multi-phase conservation program.   Some repairs to the South wall were undertaken in 1996 and Contract Documents were prepared for the remainder.  Masontech Inc. was awarded the contract which was composed of the conservation of the masonry facade from the sidewalk to the roof in addition to the following: new historically compatible cast iron screens and railings; miscellaneous repairs in the back alley, including a section of brick veneer and some rotted window frames; the replacement of the window sashes and new double glazed windows; leaded copper flashing to cornices; replacing the roofing and shingling the parapet; coating the west wall with Thorocoat in an historic colour scheme and accent lighting. 

Project dates: 1996-98
Estimated cost: $250
