PROF&E was engaged by DCC to carry out Condition Assessment (phase I of the project) and Rehabilitation Design including Construction Supervision (phase II of the project) of the 100 year old Armoury Building in Oshawa, Ontario.
The existing building experienced excessive sagging of the structural framing supporting ground floor. Working conditions in the office area was considered unsafe until the floor framing was temporarily supported by a shoring.
The original construction took place in 1914. Field access to various components of structural framing was limited.
Develop work plan and approach for the field assessment to capture all critical aspects of the structure.
The project team developed the most cost effective rehabilitation solution for the ground floor utilizing existing framing in good condition with addition of new reinforcing elements.
