Massey Hall

Massey Hall is globally renowned as Canada’s premier venue, hosting music and arts events by some of the sector’s leading names. As part of the building’s $184 million refurbishment, there was a requirement for a brick slip lintel solution – featuring England Manufactured Ibstock brick – that supported a large span opening, as well as achieving a floating brickwork effect. The specified product and design needed to blend with surrounding brickwork whilst disguising roller shutter door mechanics located at the venue’s rear delivery entrance. The specified lintel system also needed to be removable to allow service access to the door’s mechanical element.

Commissioned by industrialist Hart Massey in 1894 as a gift to the city of Toronto, Massey Hall is imbued with history. Its 2021 refurbishment was designed to preserve its character whilst ensuring its suitability for current needs. This huge task, carried out under the scrutiny of heritage departments and building inspectors, included a range of interior works such as a stage rebuild, the addition of retractable seats and the restoration of century-old stained-glass windows. Such is the esteem in which it’s held, Massey Hall was designated a National Historic Site in 1981.

IG Masonry Support’s supply of its high-quality Brick Slip Lintels, as well as its design expertise when collaborating with the client to attain the correct bond pattern, was an important aspect of this hallowed hall’s exterior renovation.
