London, Ontario

Talbot Inn, in downtown London, was the last remaining period building on the controversial Talbot Block. Two Neoclassical style (c.1865) street facing fa├žades were incorporated into the new London Sports and Entertainment Centre. Allan Avis Architects provided assessments, inventories and laboratory analysis of historic building fabric, and strategies for successfully integrating those materials into the new facility as a reproduction, period looking building. Allan Avis Architects was the Restoration Consultant.
