The scope of work for this project included the renovation of five century-old buildings and enclosing them under one roof on the historic St. Francis Xavier University campus. Additional work included a complete envelope upgrade with window replacements and masonry repairs that required close attention to detail in order to maintain the integrity of the historic facades.

The construction of infill links between the aged buildings uncovered many unanticipated architectural and structural challenges that were overcome by the skilled project team. The introduction of new mechanical and electrical systems throughout the buildings and the installation of elevators provided unique challenges in these historic buildings.
