Big girders installed for Facebook offices
A series of 20m-long fabricated girders, which are all 2.9m deep and 1.1m-wide, have been installed to create the roof of a 600-seat theatre in London’s King’s Cross development.
The theatre will be housed in the P2 building, which is a 12-storey, steel-framed building that will also comprise office accommodation over its nine upper levels.
The building has been designed by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris and will also include a fifth-floor wraparound terrace.
The offices have been acquired by Facebook, as one of the company’s three new sites in King’s Cross.
A BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating is expected to be attained by the building, which is expected to be completed in 2021.
Working on behalf of main contractor Kier, Severfield is fabricating, supplying and erecting 3,600t of steelwork and installing approximately 20,000m² of hollowcore planks for the project.
