The ONE Tower in Toronto was recently featured in Advantage Steel, the magazine of the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC).
The ONE Tower will soon be home to the first super-tall skyscraper in Canada. The One is a towering 85-storey building at the intersection of Yonge and Bloor that will rise 308 metres to house 416 condominium units, a hotel, restaurants and 200,000 square feet of column-free retail space. The design ingenuity behind The One came from the British firm Foster and Partners as well as Core Architects in Toronto.
Creating the massive steel components of The One is a task that Walters Group takes on with pride. “All of the 4,500 metric tons of heavy structural steel on site are the responsibility of Walters Group, and we take that responsibility very seriously,” says Tim Verhey, Executive Vice-President, Engineering & Operations of Walters Group.
“Every project we work on is special, but we’re especially proud to be involved with this record-breaking tower,” Verhey continues. “Through innovation and hard work, we’re fortunate to work on some of Canada’s most challenging steel projects, especially in the high-rise market.”
Cooperatively working with design and construction teams to come up with better, faster and more cost-effective ways to build is of significant importance to Walters Group, which has built decades of expertise and an innate ability to make the impossible, possible.
