The Inglis Building's ornate terra cotta facade features six lion heads topped by a massive shield and crest on the parapet. The building features one of Winnipeg's most embellished facades, striking for its different types of terracotta, range of imagery and many decorations - intricately carved flowers, fruits and vegetables, scrollwork, swags, shells. The restoration involved cleaning, re-pointing and re-glazing the facade, replacing damaged terracotta, as well as re-caulking windows and doors. Water damage on the top cornice, crest and parapet was also repaired and new metal flashing installed.
The work on the Inglis Building (291 Garry Street) represents part of BridgmanCollaborative’s mission to help preserve Winnipeg's heritage architecture for future generations.
