About Feature Walters

Feature Walters is a family-owned steel construction company that designs, fabricates, and constructs commercial, industrial and architectural steel projects throughout North America.

Founded in 1956, Walters Group is a family-owned steel construction company that designs, fabricates, and constructs commercial and industrial projects throughout North America. Regardless of the industry, size or complexity, we always bring the same passion and commitment to every project we take on.

Through our integrated network of companies, we provide products and services that complement our core business of structural steel. From industry-leading Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel (AESS) and high-end architecturally fabricated structures, to the latest in lightweight flooring technology, we’re able to bring innovative ideas and solutions to our clients.

Regardless of the size or complexity of a project, we become the keeper of your vision. Steel, metal, and glass are merely the media we use to get you where you want to go. The vision might be for an architecturally complex building, an industrial mining headframe, or a warehouse, but our approach is always the same: We work in deep collaboration with our clients, making their vision our own, and helping them turn that vision into reality. We always find a way. Clients come to us with challenging geometries, ideas of which some question the constructibility, and tight timelines. Nothing lights a fire under us like being told something can't be done. We roll up our sleeves and work to find the way forward.

Planning Budget and Design We ideally start collaborating at the very early stages of projects while there is opportunity to influence the project design and execution strategy. In the early days of a project, we offer pre-construction services and practical advice. We ask a lot of questions, bounce ideas around, and provide technical advice on what to incorporate into design, architectural and engineering drawings.

We often create preliminary models using BIM (Building Information Modelling) or working prototypes to ensure a full understanding of a project and its potential challenges and constraints.

Engineering

We provide full service in-house engineering and detailing services to support all aspects of steel construction. These include pre-construction BIM; Design-Assist and Design-Build and design services; connection design; construction engineering; rigging design safety engineering, and full steel detailing services.

Our team of professionals use the latest industry software. Each project is fully modelled in virtual space to enhance our presentation and review capabilities and to provide a seamless interface with other disciplines.

Our digital models drive our manufacturing capabilities, ensuring efficient fabrication and that all components of a project will mesh perfectly on site. Even the best technology is only as good as the people who use it. Our team of talented detailers and engineers are always thinking several steps ahead when working on a project.

Our engineers work closely with our fabricators and our Field Services team to understand exactly how the project will be fabricated and erected on site. Keeping a broad view of the project from end-to-end allows us to deliver high-quality projects, on time and on budget.

Fabrication

We bring together advanced engineering techniques, state-of-the-art technology and highly skilled people, who always approach fabrication with the end construction in mind. Every product has to fit perfectly with every other, whether we create all components of the project, or we collaborate with other trades. We can produce the highest quality piece of material, but we can only deliver a successful project if everything fits perfectly to create a harmonious whole.

Architecturally Exposed Steel

We have been involved in a large number of award-winning projects that feature Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel (AESS). AESS offers high structural standards combined with the capacity to create beautiful designs, details and finishes. In skilled hands, it is the ideal material for exposed features such as trusses, canopies, unique support systems, storefront façades and much more. AESS is all about “the three Fs” – form, fit and finish.

At Walters, our use of AESS is guided by our understanding of the architect’s vision and how the public will interact with the finished product. Shipping Shipping Moving products from the plant to the job site in a timely way is critical to keeping a job on track. We own a large shipping fleet of tractors and trailers for timely deliveries across North America. We also ship by rail or barge and for large prefabricated jobs, we engineer custom shipping solutions to ensure that there is no bottleneck when moving from A to B.

Construction Services

Our Field Services teams perform installation services in both Canada and the United States. While working on site, we continually think about how we are interacting with all other trades to ensure maximum execution efficiency. Our highly trained Site Supervisors and core team of skilled ironworkers work with us on numerous projects. Additional crews are recruited through the Ironworkers Union, and local Union Halls, ensuring that the skillset and experience on site meets both the client’s and Walters’ expectation while supporting the local economies where we work. We have a reputation in the industry for providing very good working conditions and no shortage of tools and modern equipment for our crews. Safety awareness and training remain a top priority. Along with detailed and engineered rigging studies, the best equipment available for project execution is provided to ensure a confident, safe and efficient execution of the work by our experienced teams.

Specialty Services

In addition to creating top-quality structures, Walters Group also has the capacity to add the finishing touches that truly make a construction one of a kind. Through our Feature Walters division, we work with progressive architects and engineers to create the unique elements that define leading edge architecture.
