Viterra Building (Sherwood Department Store)
Viterra Inc., Mitchell Architect Ltd., PCL Construction Management Inc., Brxton Masonry Inc., Tierdon Glass Ltd., and JC Kenyon Engineering Inc. rehabilitated this 1913 Chicago -style design, pre-First World War department store; the only of its kind remaining in Regina. Work included replacing the 1970s windows with ones that reflect the original design, restoring the decorative cast iron spandrel panels below the upper floor windows and repairing terra cotta details. The repair, repointing and replacement work completed on the façade has brought new life to this important and prominent heritage building.
Saskatchewan Legislative Building Dome
The Province of Saskatchewan (Ministry of Central Services) and PCL Construction Management Inc. restored the copper roof and Tyndall stone base of the dome of the most prominent heritage building in Regina, possibly in Saskatchewan. Work included erecting 80,000 kilograms of steel hording around the dome to create a climate controlled enclosure to allow mortar and grout to set. In total, 450 people worked on this project, repairing 7,000 stones and installing 13,000 kilograms of new copper roofing. All repairs were completed using tools and details consistent with methods used during 1909-1912, when the original dome was constructed.
New Design - Addition
St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral Community Centre
St. Paul’s Anglican Cathedral, Alton Tangedal Architect Ltd. and CCR Construction Ltd. designed new structural additions that blend aesthetically with St. Paul’s Anglican Cathedral, the oldest place of worship in Regina. To meet modern needs, a new accessible community centre was constructed adjacent to the northeast corner of the cathedral. The design of the addition complements the cathedral roofline and matches the colour and materials of the existing historic building. Accessibility to the lower level of the cathedral was also created and steel columns and reinforced concrete pads replaced timber used to support the cathedral floor beams. As well, the structure underneath the cathedral was strengthened.
