Evolo Condos in Montreal
This summer’s dry weather is making building foundations dry out and crumble and buildings to sink into the ground.

weather is always blamed in quebec, when something goes wrong with constructions, be it roads or buildings.
wouldn’t it be more sustainable to account for environmental conditions (also such ones which do not occur every year, but every 10th, or 100th) and build accordingly, spending just a little more in the outset. the technology exists anyway.
Not telling us when these places were built or what neighbourhood they’re in makes this a fairly useless half story. I mean, my curiosity is piqued, but where’s the rest?
I once rented a house on the plateau (St. Laurent and Prince Arthur) that was built on clay and every year the foundation would shift up to a couple of inches. It was crazy, you could see where all the mouldings had been recut over the years to fit the new door and window angles. It was a bit like living in a funhouse.
^ same. i lived in this place on coloniale that used to psych people out when they came over, the floor was so off-kilter. every time it was the same, people would walk into the main room and put out their arms to stabilize themselves, as though the ground beneath them had shifted suddenly. pretty droll.
That CBC article is remarkably light on detail, seems like a bit of a fake story to me.
