Macdonald building. This project required high-performance solutions while also maintaining the distinct heritage architecture and the aesthetics of the structure. This was a challenge our team happily accepted and we couldn’t be more pleased to have been involved with a project like this in our hometown.”door-commercial-ambico-2
