Project Description

Kiwanis Heritage Apartments is a three storey apartment building with 22 suites. It required a full rehabilitation. The roof had been leaking and in the fall of 2007, it was made a priority to be repaired as soon as possible. With the assistance of Touwslager Engineering, that phase was completed while design and drawings were completed for the walls and balconies in the second phase

The owners ended up with an attractive building clad in fibre cement siding. The wood framed guard walls were removed and aluminum and glass guards were installed to reduce the cost and improve the appearance. Window sealant was concealed behind the exterior trim to prolong its life. The overall appearance was made much cleaner and current. The residents are happy with the new materials and maintenance for the building manager has been minimal.
