Our Projects

Over the years, we've been fortunate to work on hundreds of projects all around Ontario. Large or small, public or private, every single one of these monuments is a unique reflection of a community and of people's lives.

We are deeply honored to be entrusted with restoring and protecting these treasures that tell the stories of our personal and collective histories. Following is a selection of our projects. Please click on the heading to go to each project's featured page. Please contact us for a complimentary consultation about your restorations projects. 

 

Aurora Pet Cemetery

This summer, we were honoured to assist the city of Aurora in excavating and restoring the city’s Pet Cemetery – Canada’s first burial ground for beloved pets. Read the related articles on the project page. 

 

CFB Petawa

One of our most recent projects is the restoration of 2 RCHA Monument at Canadian Forces Base, Petawawa. This statue was installed approx. 30 years ago as a symbol of the association of the artillery unit in Petawawa and the artillery unit in Toronto. The statue has been repaired for re-dedication in September of 2018.

 

Galt Cenotaph: Cambridge

In 2012, City of Cambridge officials contacted us for assistance in cleaning and restoring the world renown Galt Cenotaph.

 

Chatham Cenotaph

On a rainy October weekend in 2016, we deep cleaned and repaired the war memorial in the downtown square of Chatham.

 

Petrolia Cenotaph

We used low pressure, hand washing techniques to remove decades of built up grime caused by air pollution, tree sap, and lichens from Petrolia's beloved cenotaph.

 

Trinity Cross, Port Hope

This project at Trinity College, Port Hope, was emotional for everyone involved due to the small, tight-knit nature of the school's community.

 

14 Stations of the Cross Statuary, Windsor

This comprehensive restoration project of 22 statues for St. William's Cemetery in Emeryville,  started out as a simple cleaning assignment. Read more here.

 

Statue of the Crucifixion

This grouping of four metal statues required of out-of-the-box thinking to tackle the problems caused by many years of weathering.

 

 Statue of Christ

This project for the Catholic Diocese of London required us to remove an old statue of Jesus that had been damaged by years of weather, and to replace it with a new statue imported from Italy.

 

Swiss Chalet Rooster

 When we found him, the rooster had been living behind a dumpster for quite awhile after being moved from his original home on Hespeler Road.

 

Community & Students

Every year, we work with volunteers from small communities around the province who are passionate about conserving the history reflected in their local cemeteries.
