A home coming for the seagull
Steelwork also provides the signature element of the project – the roof. It will be an undulating and sloping structure designed to reflect the local South Downs. To achieve this two large trusses will span either side of the stadium, above the east and west stands, supporting this roof.

Raising the roof on 2012
The first of the 15m high, 85t steel sections of the supporting structure was lifted into place at the end of January last year. The giant white truss that runs around the outside of the stadium supports the roof and is structurally independent from the rest of the bowl steelwork.

Wheels of Steel
Work has been completed on the steel structure of the £80M London 2012 velodrome at the Olympic Park in east London. ISG started building the 6,000-seater cycling venue in March 2009, with Bolton-based Watson Steel supplying 2,500 sections of fabricated steel in a deal worth more than £3M.
