Structural steel manufacturer, Supermétal is making inroads in the fast-growing Western Canada market, with the recent announcement of their latest contract. The company has been awarded for the new terminal at the Calgary International Airport by the airport’s expansion construction manager, EllisDon.
Supermétal operates plants in Alberta, Quebec and North Carolina, serving mostly North American clients. The Quebec-based company has approximately 600 employees, and is recognized for the quality of its services and meeting construction deadlines.
Past projects for this Canadian company include manufacturing structural steel for industrial facilities in sectors such as oil sand potash, and high-rise buildings like the 51-storey office tower, Eighth Avenue Place, in Calgary. The mandate for the new Calgary airport terminal totals to over $30 million.
Supermétal will fabricate and erect 5,600 tons of structural steel for airport’s International Facilities Project (East Concourse). This is the largest expansion taking place at Calgary International, to meet rising international passenger demand that is coming through the airport. The project will be supplied in part by Supermétal’s Western Division and Leduc plant near Edmonton.
The International Concourse will be an estimated $1.4 billion investment, utilizing the most innovative features. It will have sustainable design principles, reduce energy consumption and minimize environmental impact. The terminal is set to open in late 2015, 183,500 square metres with five levels and 22 aircraft gates.
