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.
