RBC building damaged by hydro vault explosion needs to be restored.


The entire RBC building will require cleaning, painting and restoration said Contractor Edwin Guevara. All upholstered furniture, ceiling tiles, carpets, and other absorbent materials require replacement.

Restoration crews are among the select few allowed to enter the office building to clear out extensive smoke damage after a hydro vault explosion broke out beneath it earlier this month.

The bank says 20 King Street West will be closed for business for at least six months – affecting more than 1,000 workers. Workers have been moved to other RBC locations since the fire or have been working from home.
