Yorkshire gets new steel framed college
Steelwork has been completed on the new Keighley College project in West Yorkshire. More than 1,200t of structural steelwork has been erected on site by Elland Steel Structures, on what is regarded as the largest construction job in the town for 20 years.
Bob Thorpe, Chief Executive for Elland Steel, said: “We erected a beam and column structure consisting of upper ground floor, first, second and third floors, lower roof and main roof with parapets, a mezzanine floor, a curved facade and an entrance lobby.”
Conveniently located next to the town’s railway station the new Park Lane College Keighley will replace two existing educational sites nearby.
