New LCBO Headquarters Transforms Toronto’s Waterfront

100 Queens Quay East is 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 was designed by B+H Architects, with the objective of achieving the highest standards in environmental sustainability by striving for LEED Platinum certification.

Total tonnage of the project is 520 US Tons. The main complexity on the project was 400 embedded plates to which we connected the structural steel.

Facts & Figures
  • 400 embedded plates
  • Hollow bolt holes to be provided on steel for curtain wall clips
Our Role

Walters was responsible for design connections, detailing, fabrication, supply and installation of the curtain wall support steel, structural steel, metal deck, galvanized and stainless grating. The two major areas of work for Walters was the podium and penthouse of the building.

Overcoming Challenges

This project involved very tight steel tolerances to make it work for the curtain wall requirements and the steel embeds into concrete on the podium were challenging. Working around, and with, other trades on site was very important to the success of the project. We needed to expedite steel fabrication on a tight timeline.
