Project Details

This project consists of extensive renovations and additions to an existing two-storey, fully-detached, single-family dwelling. The existing structure of the building consisted of exterior double-wythe masonry walls with wood floor framing.
The structural work included:

  • Removal of the existing side and rear exterior walls;
  • Expansion of the building foot print to the side and rear;
  • A partial third story addition with a mansard roof;
  • Removal and replacement of existing floors;
  • Underpinning of the existing foundation walls; and
  • The use of reinforced concrete block walls on conventional strip footings.
