Facts & Figures

Our Role

Walters was responsible for connection design, detailing, fabrication and installing 10,500 tons of Structural Steel and Metal Deck.

Overcoming Challenges

Being downtown Calgary there was limited space for storage so all deliveries need to be managed to ensure efficient execution. Steel construction started in November 2021 and continued for approximately 12 months. This means that the Calgary Stampede of 2022 was considered in our site planning.
