Project Description

Balcony and Shearwall Repairs

765 Steeles Ave., West in North York is 22-storey multi-unit residential building. The floor slabs extend beyond the building envelope to form balcony slabs. Metal balcony railings are provided at the outside edge of the balconies.

  • Replacement of delaminated and deteriorated concrete forming the top surfaces of the balcony slab (430 sq. ft)
  • Localized balcony through-slab concrete repairs (1,000 sq. ft) and localized vertical shearwall concrete delamination repairs (600 sq.ft).
