Scope and content:
This project series documents an addition and renovations to the head office of Upper Lakes Shipping Ltd. in Toronto from 1974-1978. The office identified the project number as 7419.
This project consisted of the addition of a third floor to the office building, which was located at 49 Jackes Avenue. The original building included a house with a two-storey office built onto the back of it. This project also included renovations to the existing two floors and basement.
The project is recorded through drawings, photographs and textual records dating from 1974-1980. The drawings are largely reprographic copies used for construction, but some original plans, sections, and elevations are also present, including a presentation board. There are also drawings of the original building that were produced by Page & Steele Architects in 1958. The photographs show the original house that is part of the office building. The textual records include correspondence, conference reports, interoffice memos, construction documentation and specifications, contract data and financial records. Box AP018.S1.1974.PR15.010 contains an index to the textual records, which was created by the office.

Materials in this project series have been kept in their original order and/or arranged by material type. Some of the textual records have been arranged to reflect the original classification scheme of the office.
