Massey Hall, Preserving Toronto`s Heritage Buildings
• Won the Lump Sum Contract over 6 competitors
• No disruption to Massey Hall’s performances
• Completed ahead of schedule
A brand new 60-storey luxury condominium, aptly named Massey Tower, will be constructed beside the historic Massey Hall. The close proximity of existing foundations and walls of the surrounding heritage buildings (each over 100 years old) – and the need to protect them – were a complicating factor for the caissons and shoring work. The new structures required foundations to be installed deeper than and very close to the adjacent heritage buildings footings. Due to the sensitivity of these old footings, drilling had to be completed from several different benched elevations using different equipment and techniques to suit the needs of each phase of the foundation work.
