Facts & Figures
  • The project was enormous, requiring 25,000 tons of steel; more than 1,250 truck loads were shipped from all three Walters plants.
Our Role

Walters Group supplied and erected all fabricated steel for the project, including customized pieces for the water park and other attractions.

Overcoming Challenges

Walters participated in the early design assist components, as part of our commitment to investing early on in extensive planning and to make the work go more smoothly.

The water park involved a massive arched roof. Normally all the electrical and ductwork would have to be hung using 150-foot lifts. With PCL, we devised a plan to partially assemble trusses in the assembly yard, allowing us to do electrical ductwork and other jobs on the ground.

Once the trusses were raised, only the connections needed be done in the air. This plan offered benefits across the project, saving time and keeping workers safer on the job.
