The National Aviation Museum - Ottawa, Canada

Over the years, the company has undertaken many challenging and unusual projects. A good example of this is the National Aviation Museum roof repair project completed in the winter months of 1994 and in 2001 a complete re-roofing project was completed. The work involved the removal of 30 skylights, installation of new steel decking and restoring the PVC roof system. What made the work particularly challenging was the fact that full interior protection had to be suspended from the underside of the roof deck. This was required to protect the irreplaceable aviation exhibits from possible damage. To permit continuous operation of the museum during the day, all interior work had to be done at night.

Union Station - Via rail - Ottawa, Canada

The two-phase Via rail project was also an interesting undertaking. Phase 1 of the project was the complete replacement of the main terminal roof and installation of new skylights. Phase 2 consisted of the complete removal of the existing roofing and syporex deck panels of the loading platform roofs. New structural steel and decking complete with a modified bituminous membrane completed the job.

During the course of the 90,000 square-foot project, scheduling of the work was critical due to the arrival and departures of the passenger trains.

"They couldn't very well shut down the station while work progressed," says Georges. In order not to disrupt the ongoing operations of the station, all demolition and materials deliveries had to be synchronized with the train arrival and departure schedule.

Other notable projects the company has completed include:
  • East Block - Parliament Building
  • The Banting Building - Tunney's Pasture
  • The Cartier Square Armory
