Province House

Client: Public Services and Procurement Canada

Location: 165 Richmond Street, Charlottetown, PEI

Year of project completion: Phase 1: 05 2018, Phase 2: 11 2022

Designated by Parks Canada as a National Historic Site, Province House (1843) in Charlottetown, PEI, is one of Canada’s most significant heritage buildings. Its national heritage significance stems from the fact that the building was the site of the first of four conferences where the Fathers of Confederation met in 1864.

The work was carried out in two phases. Phase 1 consisted of a detailed investigation and rehabilitation of the envelope and structure in order to secure the site. It involved the removal of all interior finishes, including wooden windows, and the reduction of hazardous materials. The erection of a perimeter exoskeleton system and shoring package was carried out in preparation for phase 2.

Phase 2 consisted of foundation repairs, masonry work, structural requirements of the masonry and timber structure, restoration of timber windows, installation of a drainage system and restoration of the main roof and portico roofs, all to the original specification, while improving the building envelope using modern techniques in a very subtle way.
