This high-rise residential apartment building was built on a difficult, narrow, inner-city site where access to surrounding buildings had to be maintained at all times. Many elements were manufactured off site and delivered ready to install, demanding meticulous planning and coordination.

In order to ameliorate issues with weather-tightness, the brief for this project was to extensively re-clad a block of 28 residential apartments. However, architectural observations during the construction phase also revealed significant non-compliance with passive fire protection requirements. Additional design work and a successfully negotiated contract extension has resulted in an excellent project outcome.
