Steelwork in Action published in New Civil Engineer

Posted on by in Weekly News

The latest Steelwork in Action special report is available in the July issue of New Civil Engineer (NCE) magazine.

Published in association with the British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA) and Steel for Life, the supplement showcases five innovative steelwork projects.

The cover story is Twentytwo, 22 Bishopsgate, the City of London’s tallest building, where the final steel member was recently installed. More than 17,000t of structural steelwork has been used for the building, requiring more than 14,000 individual crane lifts.

A steel-framed terminal extension, featuring spans of up to 36m, is the centrepiece of Manchester Airport’s large-scale expansion plans. Other steel-framed structures include a new baggage sortation hall, three new piers and one link bridge.

Bridging the gap between two existing structures, a new roof, requiring a high degree of complex design work, has been installed at London’s Waterloo Station.

Three steel-framed interlinked residential blocks that wrap around a preserved 1840s church spire, have been constructed in Aberdeen.

A logistics and business park near Raunds in Northamptonshire is completing phase three, which consists of two large steel-framed distribution centres for Howdens Joinery.
