Trapp & Holbrook
New Westminster, British Columbia
This project included façade restoration on 2 of New Westminster’s landmark heritage buildings and construction of a new 196-unit, 20-story residential tower. The Trapp Building, originally constructed in 1899, has terra cotta ornamentation, cornices, and large pivot windows. The Holbrook Building, built in the 1880s and rebuilt after the New Westminster fire of 1898, has an elegant decorative brick and arched window hoods. The development includes street-level retail and a large indoor/outdoor amenity space with a fitness center, barbeque area, fireside lounge, and garden plots.
JRS’s services included building envelope consulting for restoring heritage elements and constructing the new high-rise tower. We provided architectural design and shop drawing review, assisted with integrating heritage façades with new construction, and provided field services throughout construction.
