Emergency façade stabilization, St. Andrews - 2016
This building in the popular tourist destination of St. Andrews, New Brunswick, dates from 1888. It has a façade consisting of three brick masonry layers, or wythes. Connections between the wythes had degraded such that the layers were peeling away from the building. Contractors suggested total disassembly and reassembly. Heritage Standing developed an alternative solution to avoid a much more costly reconstruction. While the contractors were unfamiliar with the proposed approach, they were willing to work with the alternative solution on condition that Heritage Standing Inc. would assume liability.
