Facts & Figures
  • This building features 40 storeys of concrete with three storeys of steel on the top, framing the “Lantern” feature.
Our Role

Walters supplied, fabricated and erected the steel for the signature “Lantern” feature consisting of three storeys of exposed AESS framing, which supports the curtain wall and creates the distinctive shape at the top of this building. Walters also supplied steel canopy and façade elements at many of the lower levels.

The highest principles of sustainability are embodied in the LEED Platinum property, including high performance building envelope and mechanical systems, on-demand fresh air, daylight and motion sensors, state-of-the-art lighting controls, bicycle storage, change rooms, showers and electric car parking.

Overcoming Challenges

Walters was required to adapt and integrate its steel features with the concrete contractor’s final conditions. We worked with the tolerances of the concrete structure, the location of anchor points and other specifications.

Through a combination of planning, creativity and communication with our construction partners, we were able to realize the vision of the project while accommodating the structural realities of the building.
