100 Queens Quay East is a 25-storey office tower which is part of the Sugar Wharf Condo development in Downtown Toronto. The development houses the headquarters of the LCBO, which occupies about one-third of the office space and features a 25,000 sq.ft. flagship LCBO retail store on the ground floor.
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.
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.
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.
