  • 1,200 tons of steel
Our Role

Walters role was to supply material, detail, fabricate, deliver and erect the structural steel and metal deck for the 1,200 ton Remai Art Gallery project. This included some prime painting and galvanizing as required, as well as some AESS members.

Overcoming Challenges

Given the tight logistical constraints on this project combined with the limited capacity of the tower crane, proper division sequencing was essential. This project involved extensive cambered and cantilevered members. We drew on both our “get it done” and “team player” core values.

Production and Engineering collaborated on a procedure involving shop trial fitting to ensure required geometry would be maintained. We needed to provide temporary shoring to support some of the more extensive cantilevers on this project.

Walters Detailing, Engineering and Field Services joined forces to develop a workable solution that gave the client the information they needed to design the footings in a timely manner. This plan was further developed such that Walters would ensure proper elevations before the shoring was removed and the concrete poured.
