Old Soldiers Barracks, Garrison District, Fredericton, NB

Heritage Building Renovation/Addition

Constructed in the 1820’s as a barracks building for British soldiers, this building today is a centrepiece of the downtown Fredericton tourism area and has been converted to new uses for the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design as well as seasonal fine craft shops.

From 2006 to 2011 Darroch White was general manager & architect for Goguen & Company Architecture which was subsequently renamed to Goguen White Architecture.  During that time Darroch conducted an assessment of the old balcony structure on the building and found it to be in poor structural condition.  In consultation with the provincial heritage branch he provided the current balcony design with elevator addition.  Phase 1 design of the craft college interior renovation was completed by Fellows and Company Limited while Phase 2 of the work was completed by Darroch as architect of record for Goguen White Architecture.  In 2012, Darroch completed exterior window replacements to the building under his new company of D.M. White Architecture Inc.
