A Heritage Building Gets a New Walkway:
An exposed aggregate concrete pathway made to match the original walkway surrounding the historic Fairmont Empress installed by the professional team at Flintstones.

Project Scope:
Restoration on an iconic heritage building in downtown Victoria. A new concrete walkway to the original entrance of the Fairmont Empress.

Location: Inner Harbour, Victoria



When the iconic Fairmont Empress Hotel in beautiful downtown Victoria gained new ownership in 2014, Nat and Flora Bosa planned a major renovation to revitalize the historic landmark, early-20th-century stone hotel, constructed in the Chateau style, the Empress is a heritage building and a high-volume tourist destination that required careful and considerate planning for renovation.



One facet of the renovation included a new concrete entryway path along the front of the building and reaching down to Government St. Although a large portion of this pathway would be new concrete, it would have to match up with the existing concrete leading around the building. Considering our expertise in concrete and heritage restoration, who better to call than Flintstones?
