CHUM University of Montreal Health Centre
Some History: Holy Trinity Anglican Church was built in 1865 in Montreal by architects Lawford & Nelson. In 1922 the church was sold to a Syrian Catholic congregation and renamed Saint-Sauveur Catholic Church. The church was in large part destroyed by fire in 1923 but was fully restored except for the spire which was substituted by a paler version of the original, lower and less graceful. The new stained glass windows were designed by renowned artists Guido Nincheri and Patrick O’Shea. As the city of Montreal developed, the area changed extensively and eventually the church was sold to European developers in 2000. The developers never went ahead with their plans and the church was left abandoned for 9 years. During that time most of the church was looted and vandalized. Fortunately, it was decided the church should be saved and integrated as part of the new Montreal Mega Hospital project (CHUM).

UGINOX stainless steel roofs and facades for Fort William Gaelic School
"The roof needed to be renewed following a severe single incidence of Lead theft where 50% of the Lead across the east end of the church was stolen in one night. The parish were not insured for such a large amount of metal theft and they decided to be pro-active and remove what was left. The dull grey characteristics of the UGINOX Patina and its ability to be laid on batten rolls at spacing centres that replicated Lead were factors that persuaded the local authorities and English Heritage the change of material was acceptable.“ Andrew Wiles, Wiles and Maguire Ltd.
