Working on historic buildings is always challenging due to unknown surprises and existing conditions.  Tractus Projects was approached to conduct a thorough walk-thru in efforts to perform the design and renovation of the Exchange Biz Head Office at Old Market Square.   The renovation included demolition of existing and supply of new finishes, upgrade of washrooms and kitchen, and add a new shower and a new locker space.  The result was completion success and a happy Client working seamlessly in their new space!

Challenge

Plumb-in a new washroom that is to be located overtop an existing restaurant exhaust hood

Solution

Not being too excited about turning ourselves into pretzels, we decided to expose the joist cavity from the second floor by removing and replacing the second floor shiplap.  Plumbing rough-in was then easily completed.
