Phoenix Restoration Inc. has been very busy as of late. Some of the larger projects we are working on now are Toronto’s Union Station, Osgoode Hall, and The Brockville Tunnel. We are beginning to wrap things up with the Historic Windsor Amoury.
The Brockville Tunnel is a really interesting project, as it was the first railway tunnel in Canada. The Tunnel is located under the downtown core of The Town of Brockville, and runs about a kilometre in length. Construction began on the tunnel in 1854, and was completed by 1860. Since Brockville is strategically located on the St. Lawrence river, during the 19th century the town had a very active port. The think tank behind the Brockville Tunnel, was interested in creating a quick connection to The City of Ottawa from the port.
The Tunnel itself is constructed almost entirely of brick, so the project requires the historic masonry expertise, that Phoenix Restoration specializes in. We are looking forward to its revitalization.
