Guidelines on Renovation/Restoration



An Elevator must be put on service used to transport building materials to and from the Unit under renovation. To obtain an Elevator please contact the On-Site Building Manager at 613-231-2622 weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. You are responsible to ensure that your contractor waits until moving pads have been affixed in the elevator. Residents are responsible for ensuring that the elevators and hallways are left clean after each working day.


Garbage Disposal

Do not throw construction-related garbage (i.e. lumber, drywall, carpeting, etc.) down the chutes. All garbage (including old appliances and other large items) generated by construction work must be disposed of off-site. This is the unit owner’s responsibility. Any construction related garbage left behind will be disposed of at the unit owner’s expense.



The Laundry Room sinks are not to be used to clean painting and renovation tools. The Laundry Room facilities, and the basin specifically, are intended for use by Residents who are laundering clothes only and must be kept free of paint, paint thinner, grout, etc.



Balconies are not to be used for storage of materials and/or tools during the renovation period and are not to be used as workshops. No construction or renovation-related activities are permitted on the balcony.



Fire and safety regulations require that hallways remain clear of obstacles at all times. Building materials, carts and tools must be kept inside the Unit.


Construction Related Noise

All activities which may create construction-related noise, including the use of power tools, hammers, drills, saws and related items are restricted to the hours between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday and from 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays. No construction related noise is permitted on Sundays. As a matter of courtesy, Residents of adjacent Units should be made aware of pending renovation work.



When replacing in unit flooring with rigid flooring such as laminate or hard wood flooring (as opposed to carpeting), owners are strongly encouraged to select a flooring system which includes a sound deadening underlay that has an FIIC rating equal to or greater than 65. (The FIIC rating is a technical specification which a competent flooring supplier / installer will be familiar with and will understand). This will help reduce the transmission of noise to the unit below.



Contractors are required to park off-site. Temporary unloading of tools and materials may be done from the courtyard entrance.  However, vehicles may not be left there unattended.


Washroom Facilities

Access to the washroom facilities in the Swimming Pool Area is restricted to Residents and their guests.
