Laundry Building Joist Repairs - 2013
The Laundry Building, located in downtown Fredericton, was given its nickname by the owners due to it's past use as a laundromat. The early laundromat had dryers in the basement of the building, exposing the joists to constant high humidity. The preconfederation building, now a clothing boutique, had excessive rot to the ground floor joists. Working with the owner, contractor, and local lumber mill, Heritage Standing Inc. was able to procure matching rough cut lumber and install it without closing the store above. The continued use of the larger rough lumber allowed for no alterations to foundation walls or supports and maintained existing spans.
