Historical Restoration and the Application of Today’s Building Code: The Fortune Building

Join YCLM for an in-depth tour of The Fortune Building, a historical structure completed between 1882 and 1883. One of Winnipeg’s oldest commercial buildings, The Fortune Building is a testament to a former era of grandeur that spread throughout the downtown.

After being neglected and unoccupied for many years, its new owners want to bring it back to life with its original splendor. It will offer the same occupancies as it once had, with commercial space on the main floor and offices on the upper floors.

One of the main challenges of the extensive restoration is to make sure it meets today’s building code and safety standards while, at the same time, preserving the original character, by salvaging as much material and recreating original details as possible.

The tour will be led by Unit 7 Architecture & Jillmark Construction, and we’ll be heading to Carbone Cafe Club following the tour for drinks, appetizers and networking.

Full PPE (hard hat, safety glasses, high vis, steel-toes) Required

Date: Friday, November 16
Time: 4:00 p.m.
Location: The Fortune Building (Corner of Main St. and St Mary Ave.) Networking event at Carbone Cafe Club on St Mary Ave.

Site Tour: Flatiron PTH 59 and 101

Join YCLM for a tour of the Flatiron site at PTH 59 and 101.

Flatiron is responsible for the design and construction of an interchange at Provincial Trunk Highways (PTH) 59 and 101. The project, for owner Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation, replaces an existing signaled interchange with a loop ramp interchange.

Work includes seven precast girder bridges (ranging from approximately 40 to 100 meters in length), and one cast-in-place box culvert through pass, for a total of eight structures. The project also includes construction of 1.5 million cubic meters of interchange embankment and demolition of one existing bridge and roadway updates.

The interchange is a main route for both daily commuters and commercial traffic. The surrounding communities are growing with additional residential developments expected in the near future. The project is designed to alleviate congestion in the short-term, as well as easily accommodate future infrastructure expansion for additional traffic demands. The upgrades will also improve safety at the interchange.

 Doug Corbett is an architect specializing in the design and planning of ecologically responsive buildings. His completed projects have been recognized nationally and internationally for innovation in design and green technology features, which has become the signature for his design work. He was also recognized with a 2010 Canadian Architect Design of Excellence Award for the new Winnipeg Women’s and Newborn Hospital.  Doug emerged as a professional at a very specific period in Canadian history that was defined by the energy crisis and economic downturn of the 1980’s. He studied engineering at the University of British Columbia, and earned a Masters degree in Architecture from the University of Manitoba.  Doug is a strong advocate of partnering concepts in the project delivery process with emphasis on design and sound environmental building practices. He has taught design studio at the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Architecture and has lectured on design theory and professional practice. One of the biggest lessons learned, is that no single person is responsible for an entire project and that the success of any building depends on the collaborations between individuals on the building team.  Doug was the founding partner of Corbett Cibinel Architects in Winnipeg. He was the lead architect on the Red River College Princess Street campus, winning national and international awards for design and sustainability, including the prestigious inaugural 2006 RAIC Urban Design Award. Doug merged with Smith Carter Architects as a shareholder and design principal in 2008. Smith Carter was acquired by WSP Global in March 2012, and Doug resigned to restart Corbett Architecture, specializing in post-secondary education projects, and design consulting.
