Supreme Steel, formerly known as Canron, was awarded the supply and installation of structural steel for the Coquitlam Center, Lincoln, and Lafarge Lake Douglas Stations by SNC-Lavalin Constructors (Western) Inc. These three stations form part of the Evergreen Line Rapid Transit system linking the existing Vancouver Skytrain system at Lougheed Station to the suburb of Coquitlam.

Each station has a completely unique architectural look. Due to the slopes and curves of some of the members, former Canron used both Tekla and CAD to accurately model the structural steel for precise fit-up. Most steel components are AESS and have a three-coat paint system, which requires careful application and handling; the same system was required with all Evergreen Line Rapid Transit Station contracts.
