Canadian steel construction company signs significant contract at the Calgary International Airport

LEDUC, AB, Nov. 15, 2011 /CNW/ - Structural steel construction company, Supermétal, today announced the contract for the new terminal at the Calgary International Airport in Alberta. The recently awarded mandate totals over $30 million and will be supplied in part by Supermétal's Western Division and Leduc plant near Edmonton, Alberta, which employs approximately 100 people.

"This new contract confirms Supermétal's breakthrough in Western Canada - one of the most dynamic regions in North America," said Jean-François Blouin, Supermétal's President and CEO. "Over the past few years, we have been involved in a number of projects based in the West including fabricating and erecting structural steel for facilities in the oil sand and potash sectors and also a signature 51-storey office tower- Eighth Avenue Place in Calgary. Undoubtedly the Leduc facility has been key to our success in providing enhanced, localized service. Our commitment to the region is stronger than ever as we look forward contributing to the growing economy," he added.

Supermétal has the mandate to fabricate and erect 5,600 tons of structural steel required for Calgary International Airport's International Facilities Project (East Concourse), the single largest expansion undertaken to meet international passenger demand for one of the fastest growing route sectors. The new International Concourse will incorporate sustainable design principles, cognizant of the need to create additional space, reduce energy consumption and minimize environmental impact and is expected to require an estimated investment of $1.4 billion. The main 183,500 square meter building will include five levels, 22 aircraft gates and will open in the 4th quarter of 2015. Supermétal's contract is with the airport's expansion construction manager- EllisDon. Supermétal is proud to work for EllisDon once again.

Supermétal is a well-established Canadian manufacturer that operates plants in Alberta, Quebec and North Carolina (USA) serving mainly North-American clientele. Recognized for the quality of its service and meeting construction timelines, the company based in Saint-Romuald, Québec specializes in the production and installation of structural steel for commercial and industrial buildings and employs 600 people.
