Delivering a new market for London

Posted on by in News

More than 800t of structural steelwork will be fabricated and erected by Atlas Ward Structures for two new buildings at the Western International Market in Hounslow, west London.

The market is one of the UK’s leading wholesale fruit, vegetable and flower markets, and the latest development includes a new 136,000ft² produce hall and a 38,000ft² flower hall, to replace obsolete buildings.

The project was awarded to Atlas Ward by main contractor Bowmer & Kirkland on behalf of Kier Property Developments acting as development partner with the London Borough of Hounslow.

Jim Martindale, Atlas Ward’s Engineering Director said both warehouses are propped portal frame structures featuring external three metre cantilever plant walkways.

“We’ve kept the construction fairly simple on these structures which has speeded up the steel erection,” he added.

Atlas Ward said it’s steelwork will be finished by mid February.
