The Cintec Reinforcement System was used to help rebuild Alymer Academy in Alymer, Quebec, Canada
The former Aylmer Academy (170 Principale Street, Aylmer, Quebec Canada) is of Georgian Style. Construction started in 1857 and the square Bell Tower was added in 1911. Following a fire in 1925 the original roof was replaced with a mansard style and a 3rd floor added. The building served as an English language educational lay transition facility from public school to college and university and was the equivalent of today's high school - the regions first.
For several years after, this building housed the Western Quebec School Board. In April 2019, a zoning change allowed use as a Seniors Residence. The engineering for this ADAPTIVE RE-USE was done by Luc-Alexandre Faucher, ing., M.Sc.A. of L2C Experts Conseilsen Structure Montreal, Quebec Canada and the architectural component by Samuel Pouliot of NEUF Architect(e)s in Ottawa, Ontario Canada.
The project required general wall strengthening by use of A type 3/4" (20mm) threaded rod with2" (50mm)sock and cored hole up to 13 feet (3962mm) long and B type 5/8" (16mm)rod and cored hole up to 6 feet (1830mm) long. anchors were used to connect original structure to tower added at later date providing greater structural integrity. The Cintec Reinforcement System installation was performed, by Cintec Certified installer Andre Parefrom PARANIS Construction with offices in Gatineau, Quebec Canada and Ottawa, Ontario Canada
