Project Case Studies
Cleland Jardine Engineering Ltd. was originally retained to carry out a detailed investigation of the foundations below the War Memorial. The investigations found that the podium around the Memorial consisted of approximately 25,000 sq. ft. of suspended structural slab over a crawl space. The structure was found to be in very poor condition and recommendations were made to install temporary shoring and limit heavy loads until the slab could be permanently replaced. Cleland Jardine Engineering Ltd. was retained to review the slab on a quarterly basis for safe ongoing use by the large crowds expected every year and to provide details for required temporary shoring.
Visual review and structural assessment of existing wood structural members. Restoration of the community hall included a full replacement of existing floor joists, in order to return the structure to modern building code standards. In addition, emergency shoring was designed and reviewed over the Holiday Season of 2013, to maintain occupancy for Santa’s Workshop.
