This former schoolhouse-turned-community center required grouting of all of the foundation walls which was specified as the Multiurethanes equipment. As one of few contractors in Ontario who own the equipment and is trained on it, DJM completed the grouting of the foundation walls as well as the repointing of the foundation walls.
DJM was awarded this project to replace 250+ original leaded windows with new metal replica insulated glass units (with lead tape). The project also included the restoration of 26 metal windows in the basement, masonry repointing throughout, stone dutchmen and stone crack repairs, and restoration of the decorative leaded glass upper units.
This prestigious project was completed with +VG Architects in conjunction with Trevor Gillingwater (masonry conservator) and Capital Conservation Services. It involved the inspection of the Ontario coat of arms stone carving above the Wellesley entrance on the north side of the north wing including stone cleaning, crack repairs, pin & fills, repointing and mortar patches.
This project included the restoration of 16 heritage wood windows on the north, east and south facades. It was a challenging project given the original state of the windows and what was required to bring them to a finished standard.
