Big spans for new Corby warehouse
Barrett Steel Buildings is currently erecting 1,500t of structural steelwork for a new 46,000m2 warehouse and office building for Greatline Developments in Corby.
The portal frame structure has four x 36m spans and also features a height of 15m to underside of haunch, which then increases to 20m at parapet.
External columns are set at 8m centres, with 40 bays in total giving the building an overall length of 320m. Three rows of internal columns are spaced at 16m centres.
Barrett Steel started on site in November 2007 and is currently erecting the second half of the development.
“Our programme has been adopted to suit the client’s programme and this has meant we have been able to fabricate the steel early,” said Tony Walker, Barrett’s Design Director. “A gap in the programme allowed us to continue with production ready to send the steel to site when it was required for erection.”
