Steelwork regenerates steel town
Approximately 1,200t of structural steelwork is being used to construct the Redcar Leisure and Community Heart, which forms part of a multi million pound redevelopment programme for the north eastern steel town.
Working on behalf of Willmott Dixon, Hambleton Steel is fabricating, supplying and erecting the steel for this project. The frame consists of more than 4,500 steel sections which will be held in place with 41,000 bolts.
The complex will include a six lane, 25m long swimming pool, a training and leisure pool, a dance hall and performance space, a fitness suite, junior gym and sports hall, business and community space as well as car parking and landscaped public spaces.
The local authority, Redcar and Cleveland Council, has a number of steel framed schemes aimed at regenerating the town. A vertical pier, known as the Beacon has been completed, while the Hub, a base for creative and digital industries in being built.
