Grand Valley Construction Association: Building Excellence Awards 2012
Award of Excellence Winner: Zehr Levesque Inc.
Project: The Tannery District
Kitchener’s Lang Tanning Company Building is a modern office complex as well as a throwback to the city’s past. Built 120 years ago, it once served as the largest tannery in the British Empire. Today, thanks to the excellent work of a construction team led by Zehr Levesque Inc., it is a modernized, award-winning office complex that serves as home to some of the world’s most prominent high-technology brands.
Completed in November 2011, the two-plus year renovation project saw the team completely replace the building’s mechanical system and most of its electric system, as well as its windows, all while maintaining the structure of the heritage property.
