Union Club Restoration

Two Major Restorations for One Historical Landmark

We recently completed two major projects for the Union Club of British Columbia. In 2014, the Union Club contracted us to begin the exterior restoration of the Clubhouse. Since the building had been constructed in 1913, the restoration project had to deal with its being exposed to the elements for over 100 years. The project included a challenging restoration to historic terra cotta exterior cladding and seismic upgrading to cornices. In 2016, this project was completed—on time and on budget. 

In January 2017, the Union Club contracted our team a second time to look after the restoration of the Club’s Centennial Ballroom. This included extensive refinishing of the finish carpentry and general updates to the mechanical and electrical systems. The Ballroom was done on time and on budget while the remaining areas of the building remained occupied. The common denominator for both these projects were the two leads that Knappett Projects assigned to our projects—Caleb Stokkeland and Tony Morgan.


“Both Caleb and Tony were professional in every aspect, and ensured our projects were well-managed from start to finish.”
