Metropolitan United Church

London, Ontario (1896)

The Building:
The largest United Church in Canada with seating for 1300 people

The Solution:
The church was undergoing a major sanctuary redecoration and updating of various mechanical systems under architect Bill Ruth of Tillman and Ruth Architects.

HPCS developed and implemented a conservation and stabilization program for the vaulted plaster ceilings of the sanctuary. Our work, carried out over a ten-week period, eliminated all of the collateral damage often associated conventional plaster repair, and allowed the church to get reasonable pricing on the repainting they were having done.
