    I would recommend you get an engineering company involved.

    Look for a member of Canadian Condominium Institute (CCI).

    Balcony work needs to be done carefully as it can impact the envelope of the building.

    Is your building a post‑tension cable building? That would complicate things.

    Balconies can be expensive and challenging. In my building, a post‑tension cable building, sometimes there are two layers of concrete. The bottom one is structural and includes post‑tension cables and the top is to protect the bottom one.
