Masonic Memorial Temple

Montreal, Quebec

The Masonic Memorial Temple, in the Beaux-Arts style, is a listed building and has been designated a National Historic Site of Canada. Rehabilitated over a 15-year period, the rehabilation project of the 1928 building allowed the stone and brick to be cleaned and the envelope, windows, cornices, doors, chimneys and roof to be completely renovated. A49 assisted the client in its search for public funding for a total of more than $1 million from government agencies such as the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications. A49 also provided the full range of architectural services from preliminary studies, plans and specifications to the supervision of work carried out by specialized contractors. Repairing the envelope remained the priority to ensure its watertightness and to preserve its important heritage attributes.
