Heritage Structure BCA & Rehabilitation Stabilization


6 weeks




Concentric was retained to conduct a condition assessment and rehabilitation stabilization for the Delorme and Henderson buildings located in the St. Norbert Provincial Park in Manitoba. These two heritage structures were constructed circa 1850’s and are believed to be some of the oldest structures in the Winnipeg area. Due to their cultural and historical significance, the Client needed to determine how best to preserve and stabilize the two structures.

Approach & Methodology

The following scope of work was completed by Concentric:
• A physical condition assessment of the walls, floors, roofs, windows, doors, structural members integrity and condition of roofing;
• Assessment of the temporary cribwork foundations of both Houses;
• Assessment of the safety of the two houses and solutions to make them safe, if required;
• Assessment of the potential hazardous materials that may exist within the two houses;
• Recommendations for remedial actions to stabilize the structures and to make the interiors accessible for further research purposes;
• Recommendations on the preparation of the Henderson House for being moved from its current location to a new location and details of foundation work that will be required for the installation.
