May issue of New Steel Construction out now

May 17, 2017 by NSC in Weekly News
The latest issue of New Steel Construction (NSC) is now available in both digital and print formats that will be arriving in the post this week.

Anyone who does not receive the print magazine and would like a free subscription (UK and Ireland only) should visit: while readers who prefer the digital offering of NSC, this is available at:

May’s cover story is the Moberly Leisure Centre and Prime Place in Kensal Rise, London. The project relies on a series of storey high trusses to support apartments above a sports facility.

An old concrete-framed shopping centre in Guildford is being transformed into a modern high-end retail destination with the addition of new steel floors.

The latest phase at Heathrow’s World Business Centre is another steel-framed office block. Known as WBC4, the building is a four-storey structure, which provides 7,900m² of CAT A office space.

NSC also features two transport related articles, highlighting how steel construction is shaping the UK’s infrastructure. Two steel-framed ticket halls have been erected at Farringdon to serve the imminent Crossrail scheme. Both structures have been designed to support future over-site commercial projects.

In Manchester, nine steel bridges are being erected as part of the Ordsall Chord project. Once complete, this scheme will provide a rail link between all of the city’s main stations.

Steel for Life is once again highlighted in this month’s magazine with a Sector Focus article on light gauge steel. The article investigates how products are produced and what benefits they can provide.

NSC also features, as usual, a technical article and advisory desk from the Steel Construction Institute, industry news, and codes and standards updates.
