January issue of New Steel Construction out now
The January issue of New Steel Construction (NSC) is now available in both digital and print formats that will be arriving in the post this week.
Anyone who does not receive the print magazine and would like a free subscription (UK and Ireland only) should visit www.steelconstruction.info while readers who prefer the digital offering of NSC can find it at at www.newsteelconstruction.com
NSC has been redesigned, and we hope all of our readers like the refreshed layout. This month’s cover story is the P2 Building, which is the latest steel-framed structure at the King’s Cross development in London. The 12-storey, landmark office block will have a 600-seat theatre .
We also feature another stand-out commercial scheme, City Quays 3 in Belfast. Topping out at 16-storeys and offering more than 23,000m2 of office space, the project will on completion be Northern Ireland’s tallest ever commercial building.
Europe’s largest infrastructure project High Speed 2 (HS2), is relying on structural steelwork to form its all-important manufacturing facilities that will enable the construction of the Chiltern tunnels and the Colne Valley Viaduct.
A new aquatics centre with a 50m-long competition-sized swimming pool is under construction in Sandwell, West Midlands. The Centre’s column-free span is formed by 14 x 70m-long steel trusses. Each truss had to be brought to site in four transportable sections.
The centrepiece of Highways England’s A19 Testo’s Junction Improvement Scheme in South Tyneside, is a 142m-long viaduct. Weathering steel was chosen for the structure as it does not require any future maintenance or repainting, which was an important consideration as the bridge is sat in the middle of a busy roundabout.
