Treitz Haus
Moncton, New Brunswick. (1771)



The Treitz Haus, built by Jacob Treitz Sr. in 1771, is the oldest existing building in Moncton and is unique dues to the influence of a Pennsylvania Dutch settler using early Acadian construction technology.  The preservation plans prepared by G.F. Duffus & Co. Ltd. included detailed "as found" drawings and detailed structural analysis using three dimensional CAD drawings.  

The building was required to be moved to a new site and G.F. Duffus & co. Ltd assisted with siting the building as well as preparing contract documents for a new foundation with a barrier free accessible basement, stabilization of the building, a new fireplace and chimneys, siding and historic window and door replacement.
