This multi-year, multi-phase revitalization of the buildings on College Avenue Campus both preserved the architectural heritage of the buildings, including the north façade of the Conservatory, and modernized the campus. The Darke Hall phase revitalized the 601-seat performance center with thoughtful restoration of the original aesthetic, including moldings, stained glass windows and gold accents, and incorporated modern additions of accessible seating, addition washrooms, improved acoustics, and sight lines throughout the auditorium.
Public interest remained high throughout the project because of the historical value of these buildings and their location in Regina’s Wascana Center. Our team maintained an effecient schedule to comply with the strategic federal funding program, which helped make this project possible.
Ledcor received the 2019 Heritage Award for Physical Heritage Conservation for this project.
