April issue of New Steel Construction online
This month’s issue of New Steel Construction (NSC) is now available online at www.newsteelconstruction.com, featuring reports from some of the UK’s most interesting construction projects and updates on key technical issues from steel industry experts.
Northern Ireland is the location for this month’s cover story. Ulster University is relocating to a new city centre campus and the initial construction phase features an eye-catching teaching block that is topped with a three-storey cantilevering lantern.
Prices for fabricated structural steelwork fell during 2014 but are now firming again despite falls in crude oil and iron ore prices. In this month’s issue of NSC you will find a two-page special feature analysing latest cost comparison study from Gardiner & Theobald.
The commercial sector is currently buoyant and NSC features two office developments currently under construction in the north and south of England.
Wellington Place is a six-storey office and retail development in the centre of Leeds. To maximise service efficiency the scheme has used cellular beams throughout. Meanwhile, in west London 12 Hammersmith Grove is a ten-storey Grade A speculative office block that forms the second part of a redevelopment project.
A new landmark pedestrian moveable bridge, spanning Paddington Basin has recently opened to the public. It has quickly become a local landmark as the bridge deck opens in a fan-like manner and crowds gather to watch its weekly opening.
A distribution centre for Screwfix also features in this latest issue of NSC, as well as the usual news pages, and a technical feature from the Steel Construction Institute.
