On May 18, Canam won the Architectural and Engineering awards at the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC) Awards of Excellence in Steel Construction for the British Columbia region.
The project presented at the event was the Deloitte Summit Tower, located at 410 West Georgia in Vancouver. For this 24-storey stacked cube office building, Canam Structures, formely Supermétal, delivered and erected over 5,000 metric tons of steel. Its complex shape and innovative construction feature continuous mega-columns, beams with mechanical openings, and exterior trusses tying back to the core with heavy cast steel nodes.
“The rotated cube office building looks amazing on Vancouver’s skyline, it was a true collaborative effort across all departments and building partners. It’s one of the most technically challenging towers in Canada. We are very proud of this project, and it’s truly deserving of these two awards”, says Allan Metzger, Sales and Preconstruction Manager for Canam.
