Retrofit, Remodelling and Re-Roofing

Many industrial and commercial buildings in Southern Ontario are worn out and tired. Timbro has developed a specialty in designing and reconstructing worn out, tired buildings creating new life and enhanced return on investment. The retrofitted building often results in a new end use, but not always. Inevitably, by creating new life in an old building, you have a healthier, more energy efficient working and living environment, dramatically increasing the productivity of the work force.

Depending on the existing building, the work involved can include:

  • •  Re-roofing
  • •  Re-cladding exterior walls
  • •  Providing more light through windows
  • •  Upgrading electrical and mechanical systems
  • •  Reconstructing existing buildings foundations and structures
  • •  New floors
  • •  New equipment foundations
  • •  Better insulated building envelopes
  • • More attractive facilities

We have upgraded manufacturing facilities such as DMI Industries, Kaupp Electric, Trenergy, JTL Machine, Hymac Inc. We have remodeled commercial buildings such as the Seaway Mall. We have converted industrial space into call centres such as the Minacs Call Centre in Niagara Falls. We have remodeled existing offices such as the Minacs Call Centre in Jackson Square in Hamilton, and we have converted industrial space into offices.

Often, when changing the use of an old building, rezoning, site plan agreements and stormwater management agreements are required. Timbro’s staff is trained to work with our clients to achieve all of these end results.

We also specialize in re-roofing existing metal roofs maintaining the operation of the facility during the re-roof. The re-roof provides new, more energy efficient, weathertight facilities.

Whether retrofitting, remodeling or re-roofing, the existing structure needs to be analyzed to determine its capacity for supporting the new roof, wall, heating and lighting systems.
