St. Alexander Parish

The church was constructed of a steel frame with insulated pre-stressed thermal roof panels, stone veneer and an asphalt shingled roof with copper cap flashings and copper siding.

Ridley College

This project consisted of a new two-storey classroom addition complete with a full basement and two smaller additions within the existing courtyard. There were also alterations to an existing two-storey residence and renovations to the Middle School Dormitories. Site work improvements included new site services, asphalt, curbs, walks and landscaping.


This project is one of T.R. Hinanís most challenging to date due to the small site and limited access of working inside an enclosed courtyard. The existing two-storey building that was to be demolished was not structurally sound and had to be stabilized prior to demolition. Parts of the existing remaining building required underpinning and a section of the existing building had to be shored with a system of cantilevered shoring beams.

The existing buildings at Ridley College date back to the late 1800ís, which also added a challenging aspect to this project.

McMaster University

The work included an addition and renovation to Togo Salmon Hall. The site was extremely tight and required shoring of existing foundations, removal of two story concrete panels and hoardings to complete the work in extreme weather conditions. The new addition and renovations provided new teaching facilities, shops, display spaces and elevator access.

This work was completed while maintaining access to the existing gyms and change rooms.
