Abstract

To meet the expectations of the 2005 National Building Code of Canada, the buildings on the Parliamentary Precinct needed to be assessed and rehabilitated. as there has been little to no maintenance performed on the exteriors of the buildings for the previous 50 years or so, the buildings were beginning to suffer anyway. Testing was performed on a series of walls to determine the best option for upgrading the buildings to meet the new requirements. The state of the buildings will be described, the testing and results therefrom explained together with the decisions on the structural rehabilitation still in progress.
