Changing the Skyline

Walters Group & Ironworkers International

Please note: This article contains explicit material about Ironworkers, the unsung heroes of the construction industry and the professionals that steel fabrication and erection companies like the Walters Group depend on for their success. At high elevations and in Canada’s challenging climate conditions of 110 kilometre per hour winds, -40 Celsius temperatures, whiteouts and ice, they are getting the job done. Reader discretion is advised.

Cold Weather Construction

Building for the Winter Ahead

Across North America, cargo shorts, Capri pants and flip-flops are relegated to the back of the closet, with parkas, sweaters and boots taking their place. And just as we winterize our bodies and our cars with warm clothes and snow tires, we do much the same to our houses in preparation for the cold months ahead, from cleaning out gutters to sealing cracks around windows and doors, wrapping pipes with insulation, replacing the furnace filter, draining water from the outside faucet and – if there is a fireplace or woodstove – stocking up on firewood. And those who fail to prepare often pay the price with drafts and high heating costs or, even worse, mould, moisture damage or frozen pipes.
