Consulting Engineering Services by J.W. Cowie Engineering Limited

The Kays Bros. Building is a four storey wood framed building having clay brick masonry exterior walls. The building was constructed in the late 1860's with clay brick from Scotland.

The purpose of the Cowie Engineering investigation was to establish the structural integrity of the exterior load bearing clay brick masonry walls including reporting on the quality of the clay bricks and to address all wall areas having spalled brick faces. In addition, Cowie Engineering was to advise on the extent of the historical masonry restoration required for all exterior masonry walls. Site investigation and reporting was completed by December 2011. James W. Cowie, M.Eng., P.Eng. provided all the structural engineer-ing services on behalf of Cowie Engineering. W.S. Langley Concrete & Materials Technology Inc. (Langley) acted as a Sub Consultant to Cowie Engineering. Through wall core samples were taken and ultrasonic tests were conducted by Langley.

After the completion of the report by Cowie Engineering, the Charlottetown Area Development Corporation sold the building to a local developer. The local developer has restored the interior and exterior of the building.
