Cleland Jardine Engineering Ltd. was retained by Public Works & Government Services Canada to conduct a Building Condition Audit of the National Arts Centre facility located at 53 Elgin Street, Ottawa, Ontario. The building opened in 1969 is located on a 6.5 acre property with a total building area of 1.158 million ft².
The objective of the Building Condition Audit was to review and assess the current condition of the facility, as well as develop a plan for long term capital spending. The building assessment included a review of the building envelope, structural, mechanical and electrical systems, and elevating devices. Expected capital costs over the next 30 years were determined.
