May issue of New Steel Construction out now

Posted on by in Weekly News

The May 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 a new distillery at Inverkip, near Greenock. Formed with a series of galvanized trusses and featuring a tall, sloping and pitched roof, the building has been described as a cathedral to whisky.

Steelwork is providing a major boost to Manchester’s Citylabs 4.0 development, which is said to be Europe’s largest clinical academic campus. A new seven-storey building will deliver 11,600m2 of additional specialist lab space.

Because of the requirement for long spans in its new sports hall, together with the complex geometry creating the teaching block’s roof, a steel-framed solution was the only viable solution for the Burlington Junior School project in south London.

A series of steel stiffeners are being installed within the plate girders of the 1970s built A38(M) Tame Valley Viaduct in Birmingham. The refurbishment works will extend the important transportation asset’s lifespan and minimise the need for future maintenance work.

Located off the Suffolk coast, three steel-framed artificial nesting structures have been installed as part of a conservation project. Specifically designed to house kittiwake seabirds, the structures are intended to compensate for potential impacts from a nearby windfarm.

NSC also features a profile of Jonathan Clemens, the BCSA’s new CEO, industry news, a technical article and an advisory desk note from the Steel Construction Institute, and codes and standards updates.
