Vancouver, British Columbia
RJC Engineers led the renewal of St. Andrew’s Wesley United Church, a notable Vancouver landmark originally built in the early 1930s. The structure’s long-term future was preserved through key improvements to seismic resiliency, envelope durability, and occupant safety and accessibility. Through a concerted heritage restoration process, the revitalized exterior thoughtfully reflects the building’s heritage while the restored interior renews its original glory for generations to come. The invisible integration of the engineering features as well as the seamless protection and restoration of the church’s integrity and culture, was noted as quite an achievement by the jury.
