Walters Group Invests in Mass Timber Construction


Walters Group has acquired a 50% interest in Structure Fusion, a progressive Mass Timber integration firm based in Eastern Canada.

Known as a leader in steel and tall building construction throughout North America, clients and partners come to Walters for our proven track record of innovation in structural steel. Mass Timber is an environmentally and aesthetically attractive building material that is often complementary to structural steel and our clients will need the support of Master Builders like Walters to help them deliver their visions.

Structure Fusion provides optimal Mass Timber and Mass Timber / Structural Steel hybrid structural solutions. As Mass Timber buildings continue to push the boundaries of height, scale and complexity, Structural Steel is an essential and sustainable component to ensure taller hybrid buildings are structurally efficient, cost effective and embrace the needs of users.

Structure Fusion is not directly affiliated with any mass timber suppliers or manufacturers and can provide solutions from a robust local and global supply chain to achieve the best value for our clients.

Structure Fusion is now co-owned and backed by Walters Group and by Finloc which is a company 100% owned by Mr. Marcel Dutil, Chairman of the Canam Group. These companies provide depth and reach to complement Structure Fusion’s expertise for the hybrid Mass Timber / Structural Steel market.
