Abstract (in English)

The East Block of the Parliamentary Complex in Ottawa, is one of the most significant heritage buildings in Canada. Recent renovations revealed that two of the inner walls of the main entrance, the south west tower, are suffering from severe spalling. This paper discusses the investigative programme which identified the source of the problem and recommends ways to stabilize the walls and prevent further damage.
