The scope of this project included the main process buildings which are comprised of nine major industrial structures. In addition to the steel structure, the project included rough setting approximately 515 pieces of equipment and 90 large pipe/electrical modules. Walters mobilized on site May 2014 and the project, which had a fast track schedule, was completed in the Summer of 2015.

Our Role

Walters’ role was to act as managing partner for the Walters Alberici Joint Venture (WAJV) and to take responsibility for managing this important project with AMEC’s mining division offices in Saskatoon, Vancouver, and Oakville. Responsibility and resourcing for the field operations were shared between Walters and Alberici.  Both of our companies shared a strong focus on performance, communication, and client experience.  Jointly we were well positioned to make the Legacy Project a tremendous success.

Facts & Figures

  • Rough setting approximately 515 pieces of equipment and 90 pipe/electrical modules
  • Major vessels weighing up to 270 tons each
  • 25,000 tons of structural steel

Overcoming Challenges

With approximately 26,000 tons of structural steel required and major vessels weighing up to 270 tons each, a workforce of approximately 300 employees was dedicated to this project, in addition to 10 cranes (including an 850 ton crawler) at the peak of construction.
