Weldon Law Building Halifax, NS
Originally completed in 1966, the Weldon Law Building at Dalhousie University was in need of new windows to improve the building's energy performance. The southern glazing was especially problematic, as the spaces tended to overheat as a result of older glazing technologies. The window replacement project evolved into a complete envelope rejuvenation, which included taking down the existing stonework, replacing the backing wall, creating a new curtain wall system that isolates the structure from the exterior, and adding new insulation and thermal membrane.This type of work extends the life of the building as well as lowers operational costs in the long run.
In addition to the exterior work, the interior entry will be renovated to bring it up to current standards. The removal of the entry stair will open up the foyer and transform it into a communal place for students and faculty.
