Institutional and heritage

Iconic and historical buildings must be protected and maintained according to current standards and needs. CIMA+ has technical engineering specialists who restore or renovate these unique facilities, preserving the heritage of a community.

The preservation and upgrading of historical buildings require specialized expertise. The experienced specialists at CIMA+ have completed many historical building projects developing a unique approach with expertise that has been recognized many times over and is now part of our corporate culture.



Unique multidisciplinary approach, recognized expertise

Working on older buildings requires creativity and in-depth knowledge in the preservation of materials, such as masonry, and an understanding of the overall energy performance of the building including the building envelope (facade and roofing).

There are many challenges that must be addressed when modernizing while preserving these older buildings. Close collaboration with each discipline, as well as with the client and the contractors is vital. Expertise and experience are essential when undertaking projects of this magnitude. Our teams at CIMA+ master all the particularities inherent in this type of project including aspects related to the structure or materials, electromechanics, and sustainable development.

CIMA+ is recognized for developing unconventional and highly creative multidisciplinary solutions and has demonstrated the ability to complete these projects all while respecting and preserving the heritage. From the ability to integrate the electromechanical systems, to finding ways to connect old to new, CIMA+ has been awarded and recognized not only for the quality of the mechanical, electrical or structural engineering, but for integrating all of this into the architecture, thus preserving and maintaining the beauty of the historical building.
