Despite ongoing repair work over its lifespan, the historic Burrard Bridge was demonstrating the effects of age, heavy usage and a harsh marine environment.

Safety concerns and costs of rebuilding the 130-year-old Brick House on 270 Water St. brought two masons to Tom Morrison at Heritage Standing Inc.

The Saskatchewan Legislative Building Dome Conservation project in Regina was a highly complex
structure with extremely ornate stone elements and decorative copper finishes requiring some of the most skilled conservation and restoration work anywhere in North America.
The gateway represents the main entrance into Alexander Muir Memorial Gardens off Yonge Street. The metal work of the gateway was severely deteriorated and the gate was in storage off-site and in similarly poor condition. The masonry piers, part of the gateway assembly, were in need of repointing, cleaning and flashing and the adjacent limestone stairs and retaining walls had to be rebuilt.
