Victory Building Heritage Envelope Rehabilitation

Project Description

To maintain the buildings heritage, we used historic stone repair techniques for the stone and brick masonry repair and conservation work. All new limestone was sourced from the same quarry as the original stonework.

Flashing replacement, caulking repairs around the windows and building cleaning was also performed as part of this contract. All work was completed while the building was occupied, and special safety measures were taken for pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

Classified as a Federal Heritage Building in 1990, the Victory Building was built under Canada’s Public Works Construction Act in 1934. It was one of the largest buildings constructed in Canada during the Great Depression era and it represents a new type of office building that efficiently housed several departments under one roof. It was also one of a very few buildings constructed in Winnipeg during the Depression era. Construction employed local contractors and labourers, created a demand for Manitoba materials like Tyndall limestone and was a key factor in stimulating the local economy. It is also know as the Federal Building and the Dominion Public Building.
