Our achievements

The Turcot interchange Project started in August 2016. Since its inception, it has been Structures universelles’s biggest challenge. We installed 43 bridge structures, the equivalent of 16,000 tons of steel. In the end, we provided 500 beams.


The expertise of the team at Universal Structures allowed them to complete the assembly of the bridge to the Nuns’ island quickly while maintaining quality standards to meet the needs of their customers!

Our story

Founded in 1962, Universal Structures was born in Charlemagne thanks to Mr. Roma Fortin. This family business, established for over 50 years, has over three generations of steel erectors, and crane operators since the birth of the company.

In the 90s, the company decided to reach out to new customers by adding to their specializations the service of assembling panels of architectural concrete. With the growing demand, Universal Structures moved to Saint-Roch in order to expand their offices. Mr. Fortin has passed on his passion for the business to family members and making Universal Structures a reputable family business.

Mainly specializing in the installation of steel structures during their beginning, the company soon decided to expand their fleet of equipment in order to meet the needs of all their customers. The acquisition of all of this equipment allowed them to seek more customers and offer additional services such as crane rental.
