Minoru Chapel Rehabilitation

Project Details

Rehabilitation of Minoru Chapel is being undertaken methodically during a multi-year process. Working closely with our client, the City of Richmond, the first phase was to conduct an architectural, structural and heritage analysis in order to ascertain the scope of work and best sequence of events. The second phase, undertaken during December 2014 and January 2015 by Penta Builders Group Inc. as builders, was to rebuild the roof structure and roofing to current structural and seismic standards. The next phase will be to upgrade the interior washroom, restore interior flooring and other damaged finishes and to construct a new ramp on the exterior.
