Representatives from Irving Shipbuilding, Walters Steel, Ironworkers Local 752, Hatch Mott MacDonald, EllisDon and Irving Equipment gathered on August 6, 2014 to celebrate the installation of the last steel truss on Irving Shipbuilding’s new production building, under construction at Halifax Shipyard and where Canada’s new naval combat ships will be built starting in 2015. 

The truss was signed by members of Ironworkers Local 752, including Simon Prosper, an apprentice with Walters Steel, before it was lifted 47 meters to be placed on the top of the very north end of the new building. Halifax Shipyard’s new Assembly and Ultra Hall production facility will be more than four football fields long once completed.
