The Dogwood

White Rock

BC Building Science was retained by the Owners of The Dogwood as the Prime Consultant for a targeted building envelope renovation at their building.  The Dogwood is a three-storey wood-framed residential building constructed over a below-grade cast-concrete parking garage, located in White Rock, BC.

The Strata approached BCBS to assess the existing condition of the balconies and related building envelope assemblies.  A thorough Balcony Condition Assessment was conducted, and it was determined that a full balcony renovation was in order.  Scaffolding was erected and the team got to work!  The end result was a brand new balcony system which was not only much safer for residents but also far more attractive with its streamlined and modern appearance.

Through a process of consultation and various other methods, an architectural design strategy was developed and approved by the Strata. Throughout the course of the project, BCBS provided the following services:

  • Renovation Approach and Philosophy
  • Investigation and Condition Assessments
  • Professional Engineering Design and Management
  • Specialty Structural Engineering
  • Building Envelope Commissioning and Testing
  • Drafting and Specifications
  • Balcony Renovation
