TEMPE, ARIZ. (Jan. 19, 2023) – After 35 years of collaborating with more than 100 clients on more than 5,000 projects, W&W Structural is rebranding and expanding to continue providing structural steel services to an ever-growing construction market in Arizona and the Southwest.
W&W is a full-service structural steel, iron, and architectural/ornamental iron fabrication and erection firm founded in 1987. Its rebranding efforts include a new logo, a new website, and an in-house promotion and education initiative.
“Since 1987, we have been committed to personal growth and exemplary workmanship,” said W&W Structural President | Owner Jodi Malenfant. “By continuing to invest in our people, W&W maintains a stable, skilled, and productive workforce. As part of our growth plans, prospects will now be able to apply directly on our new website. This will greatly help with our hiring needs.”
W&W Structural has also created a structure in which employees can grow organically within the company. This includes field employees moving into positions such as estimators or project managers.
“We are always looking for new, qualified field workers, foremen, and employees to expand our company,” said Michael Gillard, the firm’s structural steel estimator.
The company was named W&W Architectural Metals, Inc., when it opened its doors. The name was changed to W&W Structural, Inc., in 2010 to best reflect its marquee leadership and operation experience. In 2019 it became a full-service structural steel contractor by staffing and training its skilled erection workers.
Notable projects include:
- Tempe Transit Station;
- Queen Creek Fire Stations Nos. 2 and 5;
- Deer Valley air traffic control tower;
- Mark Kia auto dealership in Scottsdale, Arizona.
“W&W has been an outstanding contributor to the commercial construction industry. It has supported training programs, workforce development efforts and more,” said Tom Dunn, President of the Arizona Builders Alliance (ABA). “W&W is an integral part of the Arizona commercial construction industry.”
W&W Structural service lines include steel detailing, steel fabrication, steel erection, and steel management. Project experience is in healthcare, hospitality, transportation, education, federal work, industrial, multi-family, office, recreation, religious, residential, and retail.
W&W Structural is actively involved with industry groups including the Arizona Builders Alliance, ASA, NAWIC, AZCREW, and AZSPE. Philanthropy is also a core value of the company.
“After 35 years in the Valley, we value giving back to the community,” Malenfant said. “Our company cherishes the time spent improving the lives around us. We are looking to make a real lasting difference in our community. As such, we support various organizations through donation drives, fundraisers, and sponsorships.”
Malenfant recently participated in “Over the Edge,” an annual event that benefits Special Olympics of Arizona. Participants repel down the side of the 27-story CityScape tower in Downtown Phoenix, challenging them to gain the courage to try something out of their comfort zone, similar to how a person with intellectual disabilities may feel when participating in sports.
“It was a thrilling experience and something that I will never forget especially since it supports a great cause,” Malenfant said.
