Situation

The Strathcona Hotel is based right in the heart of Toronto – surrounded by historic Fairmount Royal York Hotel, Union Station and blocks away from the CN Tower. With a goal to make hotel guests feel warm and welcome, building envelope maintenance is of utmost importance.  Strathcona’s roof system was experiencing general deterioration with debris and vegetation interference.


Challenge

One of the key challenges on this project was the extremely limited site access conditions. All material and equipment needed to be hoisted to the roof as a crane could not be used on this site.


Action

Roof & Building Service performed inspection analysis, condition reporting, consulting solution design and project management for this client.


Result

Roof & Building Service successfully  delivered a new 2 ply modified bitumen roofing system on this 11-story high-rise.
