And our focus always remains on the relationships we develop with every client, owner and crew member along the way.
Barrack Green Armoury in Saint John, New Brunswick, is recognized by the Federal Heritage Buildings Review Office (FHBRO). This facility, originally constructed in the early 1900’s, required a new roof to replicate the appearance of the original, but provide modern performance and longevity.
The C.O.V.E (Centre for Ocean Ventures and Entrepreneurship) was constructed to become an ocean tech cluster that supports five key sectors of the new ocean economy; Defence and security, fisheries and aquaculture, energy, marine transportation and marine tourism. Sixty-year-old coast guard buildings on the Dartmouth waterfront were renovated and modernized to support the expectations any technology required by new user groups.
EastPoint is working with Dalhousie to re-establish the labs, teaching space, collaborative learning areas, and office space for university professors and students in a key building on the Agricultural campus in Truro. An older building that sustained fire damage, the project includes determining program and technical requirements to create new, bright, safe spaces that meet today expectations for student experience, and environmental and code compliance.
An important healing space for returning military personnel, the mental health facility at Gagetown required upgrades and renovations to expand its scope of services, capabilities, and install additional sound and security. The work was required to take place without a lapse in critical clinical services, so design and construction took place while the building was still operational and safe for staff, military and their families.
A renovation project in Sydney, Cape Breton, EastPoint conducted two masonry studies to understand the issue related to restoring and revitalizing these two heritage buildings, and ensured the design both repaired and maintained the historic look of the structures.
