This month’s cover story is the redevelopment of the historic Lord’s Cricket Ground, where two new steel-framed stands are being built. When complete, the Compton and Edrich stands will offer accommodation for around 11,600 spectators.
A steel framing solution is ensuring that theatre is returning to Brixton, where Lambeth Council is constructing the Ovalhouse. Structural steelwork is providing the scheme with its vital long-span internal spaces.
Also in south London, a new church and residential complex is being developed in Wimbledon. The five-storey steel frame consists of three upper floors of apartments, sitting above a large congregational space and church meeting rooms.
The London School of Economics is continuing its overhaul of its campus with the construction of the flagship Marshall Building. Two large tree-like steel structures are providing the building with open plan areas, while maintaining the desired architectural vision.
