100 Queens Quay East will be a 25-storey office tower which will become part of the Sugar Wharf Condo development in Downtown Toronto. The development will house the future headquarters of the LCBO, which will occupy about one-third of the office space and the ground floor will feature a 25,000 sq.ft. flagship LCBO retail store.
The new office tower has been designed by B+H Architects, with the objective of achieving the highest standards in environmental sustainability by striving for LEED Platinum certification.
Walters is responsible for the supply and installation of the structural steel for the supporting curtain wall. The two major areas of work are the podium and penthouse of the building.
Total tonnage of the project is 520 US Tons. The main complexity on the project is 400 embedded plates to which we are connecting steel. We have completed about 80% of the erection on the podium. The Penthouse erection start date is mid-July.
Walters is responsible for design connections, detailing, fabrication and installation of curtain wall support steel.
This project involves very tight steel tolerances to make it work for the curtain wall requirements and the steel embeds into concrete on the podium have been challenging. Working around, and with, other trades on site is very important to the success of the project. We have needed to expedite steel fabrication on a tight timeline.
