Founded in 1957, the University of Waterloo is recognized as one of the most innovative learning institutions in Canada. But when some of the brickwork on its buildings started to deteriorate due to moisture penetration, the University had to look beyond the campus for help. It called on the expertise of Empire Restoration to perform the necessary repairs. And now, 15 years later, Empire continues to provide restoration services to the University of Waterloo.


Project Highlights:

  • Matching bricks and mortar were sourced for each of the buildings.

  • Instead of replacing costly limestone panels, Empire anchored and stabilized the existing panels with helifix ties, thereby reducing repair costs.

  • Other services provided by Empire included: repointing, caulking, stone repairs and waterproofing.
