Steelwork nearing completion for major Sky facility
Requiring 6,500t of structural steelwork, Severfield is close to completing its steel erection programme at Sky Studios Elstree.
The site covers an area greater than 17 football pitches, adjacent to the A1(M) just north of London. There are nine main buildings in total, eight stage and production structures, and a multi-storey car park.
Structural steelwork is playing a pivotal role in the project as all of the buildings are steel-framed, with Severfield fabricating, supplying and erecting the entire portfolio with the exception of the car park.
Steelwork was chosen as the framing solution because of its ability to create flexible column-free spaces with spans of up to 54m-long.
Forming the majority of the structures, 92 trusses, weighing up to 13t, have been erected.
