In response to the urgent need for increased supportive housing in Toronto, the City has undertaken an initiative to transform several properties into shelters, engaging RJC for consulting engineering services.

Major renovations to 292-296 Parliament St. create a welcoming space dedicated to women, Indigenous residents, seniors, people with disabilities and others who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness.RJC acted as the Prime Consultant, Structural Engineer of Record and Building Envelope Consultant.

During the Building Condition Assessment of this 1920’s-built property, RJC’s team identified previous construction work undertaken without permit or compliance with the Ontario Building Code.

Our team developed a renovation program, which both addressed the base building code deficiencies and converted the mixed-use building into a 28-unit supportive housing complex.

Work included replacement of suite kitchen millwork and suite and corridor flooring, complete repainting of suites and corridors, and replacement of rooftop mechanical equipment and in-suite furnaces.Our scope also included demolition and re-orientation of suite partition walls, replacement of in-suite electrical distribution, construction of a new rooftop deck and replacement of the 2nd floor flat roof.The transformed building now includes large self-contained studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, each with a bathroom and a kitchen.

It also has amenities such as shared laundry, communal areas and programming spaces.
