Casa Loma Restoration
Casa Loma is a historical landmark, museum and popular venue for social events in Toronto.
RJC Engineers has worked on this award-winning, multi-phased, complex renovation project with a project value to date of $60M over ten phases.RJC worked extensively on timber repair on the heavy timber roof-framing, including reviewing and appraising the structural integrity of the existing trusses and framing along.
RJC has also completed extensive concrete, masonry and stone repair throughout the building, and assessed the retaining walls, basement structure and a general structural system review.RJC provided an overall condition assessment of the concrete slabs, masonry/stone walls and chimneys.
Localized repair or replacement were marked where applicable, most notably on the Scottish and Norman Tower.
RJC also collaborated with the geotechnical consultant and Taylor Hazell Architects Ltd.to develop a repair solution for the prominent garden wall which was failing.
Partial rebuilding with full retention of original core and foundations was sufficient to revitalize this part of the project.
