Our Role

Walters Inc., with Metropolitan Walters, and Dave Steel Company, will be responsible for the supply and install of the pre-cast core, structural steel and metal deck.

Overcoming Challenges

550 Washington poses a number of challenges because the installation of new steel within the existing building requires multiple surveys to ensure a smooth fit-up operation. With steel set to swing Q1 of 2020, an expedited effort is required by all teams to get the tower cranes set up and steel delivered on time to ensure schedules are maintained. Being responsible for both the pre-cast and structural steel installation, Metropolitan Walters will be continually managing resources and cranes to ensure the building moves up tier by tier in an efficient manner.
