The research project will investigate and analyze a range of existing site and building conditions that may require upgrading and/or conservation at the existing Leacock Museum, former home of Canadian humourist, Stephen Leacock. The site is a National Historic Site, located in Orillia, Ontario. Research will be focused on: barrier free accessibility; exterior cladding; exterior historic woodwork condition; energy savings; and assessment of the site as a cultural heritage landscape. The research will provide +VG Architects, the sponsoring partner, site condition data and options for potential conservation strategies. This will assist +VG Architects in preparing a comprehensive planning document to assist in prioritizing future capital maintenance projects for this National Heritage Site.
