Planning the restoration of a National Historical Site while keeping it safe for the public to enjoy today
Built in 1898 within Lansdowne Park, the Aberdeen Pavilion is the oldest surviving Canadian example of a large-scale exhibition building—it’s also a designated National Historic Site. Over its history, the Pavilion has housed a variety of events including Stanley Cup Championships and Livestock exhibitions, earning its nickname “The Cattle Castle”. Today it continues to be used for special events, festivals, and farmer’s markets.
The City of Ottawa is in planning to revitalize and restore the Aberdeen Pavilion roof structure. They retained our team to investigate and confirm the condition of the structural and architectural components and provide guidance for the future restoration design. We assessed the structure’s condition including developing detailed analysis models, and 3D-printing a scale model of the Pavilion and surrounding park to accurately determine roof snow distributions using cutting-edge wind tunnels techniques. Our team continued by providing services for the design and implementation of recommended immediate repairs to the structure.
Upon completion, these repairs will sustain the structure of the building, allowing events and visitors to continue enjoying the Pavilion safely in the time leading up to the eventual full restoration of the roof.
