Scope and Content

This project series documents the roof restauration of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto from 1992-1993. The office identified the project number as 9215.

This project consisted of the first phase of renovations and additions to the music school, housed in Victorian-era McMaster Hall on Bloor Street and originally built in 1881. Three phases of construction were proposed in the original master plan (see file AP056.S1.1991.PR07.010 for complete master plan), including this project to restore the original historic roof. The master plan recommended replacing the roof and gutters, removing the creeper, repairing the brick and stone, cleaning, repointing, installing an anti-pest system, repainting and adding a new spire.

The project is recorded through drawings issued for tender dating from 1993.
