Construction Cost $3.1 million

Project Description

Lions Terrace is a three storey townhouse complex owned by a non-profit society. It has 45 dwelling units. The owners had a Building Envelope Condition Assessment report already but Touwslager Engineering prepared a second opinion and consulted to the owners through to final completion. The owner opted for a full reclad based on the amount of decay and poor detailing.

This project was fairly typical in that we met with the owner (Executive Director) and presented options during meetings and in a formal report. Major decisions included a change in cladding from vinyl to stucco and a change in colour. An acrylic colour band around the windows provided a contrast to match the original wood trim but at a lower cost and without the maintenance of paint and extra caulking. As with all repairs, the walls incorporate a rainscreen cladding system.
