Phoenix continues restoration work at Casa Loma Castle (pictured above) despite the first major snowfall of the season. Phoenix is currently saving the existing landscaping and restoring the stone pillars around the perimiter of the castle. In this photo, the stone blocks are being stacked back on top of the pillars with the help of a crane, as some of these stone blocks weigh hundreds of pounds.
Phoenix Restoration is proud to be restoring this beautiful historic property!
Phoenix is wrapping up multiple Toronto District School Board projects this month.
Phoenix replaced several window units at Bloorlea Middle School, located in the west end of Toronto (featured above). A variety of repairs were performed on several schools across the GTA including Harbord Collegiate Institute, Balmy Beach Community School, Emery Collegiate Institute and Ionview Public School, to name a few. We look forward to working with the TDSB during the summer months, and breathing new life into some of Toronto`s oldest educational facilities.
This summer, Phoenix is performing restoration work to Casa Loma’s perimeter stone wall (pictured on the left). A ribbon pointing mock up (pictured on the right) is currently in progress. This process is to ensure that our restoration method accurately replicates the look of the original wall before commencing the work on site. Completing mock ups for our clients are one of the many ways we ensure quality construction.
At Phoenix Restoration, we are committed to excellence and committed to quality!
With the recent spike in gas prices, we try to remember a time when a trip to the gas station was an enjoyable one. Many Toronto citizens have fond memories of stopping at the Joy Oil gas stations that were operational many years ago. Joy stations were first introduced in Canada in the 1930s with the intent of offering discounted gas prices to the public. The last existing station, which is now located on the south side of Lake Shore Blvd. West, is now a designated heritage site. Phoenix Restoration had the pleasure of restoring the historical building to its former glory, and preserving the memories held by the citizens of Toronto.
Check out a recent article by the Toronto Sun to see the fully restored Joy Oil gas station:
Phoenix Restoration participated in the 2018 EllisDon Charity Hockey Tournament this past weekend to raise money for Threads of Life, a charity dedicated to supporting families after a workplace fatality, life-altering injury or occupational disease. Thank you to all the participants and to those that came out to show their support!
