Jersey project banks on steel

Posted on by in News

nJersey1505A new premises for the Royal Bank of Canada in St Helier, Jersey is making full use of steel construction by utilising 2,000t of steel, a total that includes 1,000t of Westok cellular beams.

Main contractor for the six-storey office block is Dandara and it awarded Elland Steel Structures the contract to supply and erect steelwork as well as install metal decking and four precast cores.

“Due to tight access constraints on the site, the project has been split into four main phases and a number of sub-phases. This was necessary due to the very tight timescale between receiving construction status information from the structural engineer and steel being required at site,” said Elland Steel Structures Commercial Director Jeremy Shorrocks.

The breaking down of the project into phases has made temporary stability of the steel structure an issue.

Elland Steel carried out a temporary stability study that culminated in the introduction of temporary bracing to stabilise the 26m high structure during erection.
