The heritage building was first built in the late 1800s and since then, has gone through numerous alterations prior to our arrival on site. The heritage building was first built in the late 1800s and since then, has gone through numerous alterations prior to our arrival on site. This was a challenge as it resulted in several layers of history being uncovered as the construction stages progressed, one being the building’s exterior awning. The key structural components of the awning being the outriggers and tie rods were classified as ‘heritage’ and thus, remains within the new awnings structure. This has created a historic time capsule for the building which will continue for decades to come.
