Mixed Use Development, Infill / Restoration / Adaptive Reuse, Ottawa, Ontario

RMA acted as Heritage Conservation Architects for the Prime Consultant Architect, B+H Architects, on this award-winning 13-storey, mixed-use building that included the conservation and integration of four heritage buildings facades into the new building complex. The facades included those of the Hardy Arcade with facades on Queen Street and Sparks St., and the replication of an arcade linking the facades. Project services included: paint sampling and analysis, metal conservation, replication of terrazzo floor and wall coverings, decorative plaster, wood window conservation, brick and stone masonry restoration, recreation of stone storefront bases and terracotta facade restoration. The project required close coordination with various levels of government – Federal, Municipal, and the National Capital Commission. RMA also developed an exterior heritage building tenant signage manual keeping with the heritage character and complying with City and the NCC requirements.
