It is a great pleasure to announce that on October 22nd, the St. Jacques bell-tower rehabilitation project was awarded the Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals (CAHP) Award of Excellence in the category of Conservation – Architecture. A project that began more than 10 years ago and involved exceptional efforts from a superb team of architects, engineers and craftspeople, saw its completion in January of this year.
Our sincere congratulations to Daniel Durand, Pascal Létourneau and the team for all of their outstanding work. DFS is honoured to be a part of the conservation of this Montreal landmark and we are very proud of this collective achievement.
The Redpath museum at McGill University
We are very pleased to announce that DFS Inc. has been awarded the mandate for several new developments at the Redpath Museum at McGill University.
Built in 1882 and located in the heart of the downtown McGill campus, it is one of the oldest museums in Canada and currently home to numerous artifacts including 3 mummies, thousands of fossils and several dinosaurs. Comprised of 2,734 m2 and spread over four levels with a Victorian teaching auditorium on the second floor and several research laboratories in the basement, this masonry and wood edifice is a distinctive expression of eclectic Victorian Classicism and an unusual example of the Greek Revival in North America.
We are exceptionally proud to be a part of the preservation and modernization of this cherished Montreal landmark.
DFS continues to contribute to the preservation of historic Montreal
DFS is excited to announce that we have received the mandate for the restoration of the stone façade of the landmark Toronto-Dominion building in downtown Montreal. Built in 1908 according to the architectural plans of our predecessors, Ross & Macfarlane, we are particularly attached to this building, one of the first commercial ventures of the firm. An important piece of Montreal and DFS’ history, we are delighted to be able to contribute to its ongoing legacy.
