RITZ-CARLTON DEVELOPMENT PROJECT
/ CONTEXT The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, which opened in 1912, is located in the heart of Montreal’s Golden Square Mile. This prestigious hotel is undergoing a complete renovation including the addition of luxury residences. Delsan AIM was contracted to prepare for the future transformation of this historical building by selectively demolishing all fourteen levels back to the main structural framing, while protecting valuable architectural finishes.
/SOLUTION This challenging two-year project involved the removal and selective salvaging of architectural finishes as well as the demolition of mechanical and electrical systems from over 250,000 square feet of building floor area and included the abatement of 3,000 tons of plaster finishes under asbestos abatement conditions.
/ SELECTIVE DEMOLITION In the final stage of this project, Delsan AIM selectively demolished an entire section of the building structure in order to prepare for a new addition to the hotel. A mast-climber platform – with a specially engineered support structure – was installed on the roof of an adjacent operating parking garage in order to facilitate worker access.
/ SAFETY FIRST Delsan AIM followed engineered demolition procedures to selectively remove the concrete floors, masonry walls and the main structural framing of the building and ensure public and worker safety and the integrity of remaining structures.
