Built between 1814 and 1816, Fort Mississauga is located at the mouth of Niagara River and Lake Ontario. This fortification is the only remaining example of its type in Canada; it consists of a square tower within a star-shaped earthwork. In addition to the tower, other significant remains are still present on site such as the entry gate, the powder magazines and the sally port giving access to the lake.
Based on a recent condition assessment of the site, it was determined that the built assets were in need of stabilization work in order to address the failing elements and correct the issues. Our involvement was, as a heritage recorder, to provide the consulting team up-to-date records of the assets and structures on site. The recording was done using 3D laser scanning technology, and several drawings were prepared for each individual structure.
