St. Michael Cathedral

Toronto, ON

One of the oldest buildings in the city, this medieval Roman Catholic Church is a dominating presence in the heart of Toronto and considered vastly important to the region’s history. Designed by William Thomas, it stands as an example of a 13th or 14th century English Gothic Revival style of architecture. Its building was financed by Irish immigrants in 1845 and it was dedicated three years later to St. Michael the Archangel. It has since expanded and can accommodate more than 1,600 people.

Iconoplast was commissioned to take on a multi-faceted remedial project for this heritage site. Our work included:

Repair of existing historic gothic boss connections to the beams;

  • Repair & stabilization of removed gothic bosses;
  • Duplication of two historic bosses;
  • Installation of historic bosses & other repairs.
