Distribution centres take centre stage in this month’s issue and our cover story is Kingston Park in Peterborough. Located south of the city, this logistics park is expanding with the construction of three new BREEAM ‘Excellent’ distribution centres.

Meanwhile, St Modwen Park Stoke Central is also expanding, as a new warehouse for the National Veterinary Services is nearing completion. The 20,900m2 steel-framed structure will also include a 2,248m2 three-storey office block, alongside a 284m2 two-storey transport hub.

In Barking, east London, a vertical trading estate that will deliver 45 industrial units within a four-storey structure is being built. The steel-framed project is an innovative approach to accommodating multiple industrial spaces on confined inner-city sites.

Blackpool will have one of the UK’s largest IMAX screens when it opens next year as part of a multi-million-pound cinema complex. A steel-framed solution is said to have provided the best solution for a structure that incorporates a number of different sized spaces with varying column layouts.

Structural steelwork has also taken the leading role in the construction of a tower that supports a new flume ride at Center Parcs Whinfell Forest in Cumbria.

NSC also features industry news, a Steel for Life Gold Sponsor article, a technical article and advisory desk from the Steel Construction Institute, and Codes and Standards updates.
