Brighton Block - Design and Construction
Date: September 19, 2019
Time: 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM
RJC is providing structural engineering services on this three-storey, 1912 Edwardian mixed-use
building. The project intent is to add three storeys totalling 15,000 sq. ft., completely demolish the 19,337 sq. ft. of interior, and rebuild it. To support the additional levels it was vital to design and complete a new support structure for
the building including a new foundation, new support columns, and new cast in place concrete floor slabs.
The redevelopment involves complete removal of the existing wood frame structure to accommodate for the new construction, flat plate cast-in-place concrete floors are used to maximize floor clearance. The building perimeter columns were constructed first within the existing structure to stabilize the existing masonry walls, which have been designated as a heritage resource.
