Colonial receives Award of Excellence for work on John F. Taylor House

Colonial Building Restoration was recently awarded the William Greer Architectural Conservation Award of Excellence 2014 for its part in the restoration of the John F. Taylor House in Toronto.

The building, sited on the east bank of Toronto's Don River, was constructed in 1885, designed in the Queen Anne style and constructed from local brick on a stone base.

The work involved extensive repair and refurbishment of masonry, windows and doors, replacement of finials, restoration of fine ceilings and cornice plasterwork and the addition of a new elevator.
