The June issue of New Steel Construction (NSC) is now available in both digital and print formats that will be arriving in the post this week. Readers of the digital version of NSC, can access it at

This issue’s cover story features the UK’s largest urban leisure centre. Located in Woolwich, the facility has used a stacked-up steel-framed design to allow numerous sports facilities to be positioned within one town centre building.

NSC reports on two warehouse schemes, beginning with Symmetry Park Rugby. Steelwork is currently being erected for the development’s third phase, which consists of three speculatively-built distribution centres.

Known as Urban Logistics Tottenham, two warehouses are being built to satisfy a growing demand for high-quality logistics space in north London. Steelwork is helping this scheme achieve its impressive 42-week programme.

In Manchester, the final element of the city’s Circle Square mixed-use development is nearing completion. Steelwork is forming a 15-storey BREEAM ‘Excellent’ office block, which is said to provide the perfect synergy between sustainable, high-quality workspaces and first-class amenities.

Refurbishment projects are becoming more commonplace, and the work being carried out on a 42-storey office tower in Canary Wharf may well be the capital’s biggest refurb scheme to date.

The existing steel frame is being cut and carved, with numerous strengthening plates, up 100mm-thick, welded into place onsite.

NSC also features an article on assessing carbon emissions, industry news, a technical article and an advisory desk note from the Steel Construction Institute, and codes and standards updates.
