Cintec North America Announces Restoration and Anchoring Work on Massey Hall, Famed Canadian Concert Venue

North American firm helps complete restoration of historic Toronto building.

Cintec North America announces its reinforcement anchors offer stability and support during the revitalization of Canada’s most renowned concert venue, Massey Hall.

As Massey Hall marks its 125th anniversary, a century and a quarter of Canadian history has been stripped bare to be massively restored, not only to recapture the hall’s original sound, but to make sure it will serve audiences for generations to come. This restoration project is proudly supported by Cintec's anchors.

Cintec™ reinforcement anchors can stabilize and strengthen an unreinforced masonry structure without the need for external and internal steel bracing, making them ideal for historical buildings, masonry bridges, monument repair, high rise buildings, retaining walls and harbor walls. Cintec™ reinforcement anchors also withstand freeze-thaw cycles without shrinkage or loss of strength, limiting the threat of Toronto, Ontario weather to the historic structure.

The Cintec™ system comprises a steel section in a mesh fabric sleeve, into which a specially developed cementitious grout is injected under low pressure to create both a mechanical and cementitious bond. A simple, easy-to-use system with fast installation and minimal cleanup, the specific reinforcement and anchoring system used for Massey Hall is custom-designed for the project, as are all Cintec projects.
