Heritage buildings should be beautiful, not covered in scars. Prior to our involvement with this downtown Toronto heritage high rise, it was obvious where repairs had been performed since they did not match the parent material well. Over the past 10-years Grgas has been working with the Owners of this building to assess and maintain the integrity and beauty of the building exterior.
Services included a complete building assessment of all elevations of the building via bosuns’ chair, and a phased repair management strategy. Repairs also included hand carved elements, including a Gryphon near street level that had a crack running through its shoulder. Repairs were performed utilizing Jahn materials and techniques resulting in repair patches that were nearly undetectable from the street.
