University of Winnipeg, Wesley Hall Restoration
Size: 45,000 ft² / 4,180 m²
Wesley Hall has been the flagship building and face of the University of Winnipeg on Portage Avenue since its construction in 1894. The degradation of the heritage building’s sandstone façade has been the subject of intensive study over a twenty-year period and was approved for repair in 2005.
The scope of work for this project included the replacement of the exterior stone and replication of the details, the replacement of the wood windows, and replacement of the roof and water management system. A poured concrete exterior envelope was constructed below grade and various interior renovations were completed, including upgrades to Convocation Hall.
