“Using a steel frame solution has helped form the flexible long-span floorplates required for a Manchester city centre commercial development” – NSC, February 2019.
Billington Structures have provided the 13-storey above-ground steel frame for Bowmer & Kirkland on Project Beach.
The structural frame has a composite design with the plate girder beams supporting metal decking and a concrete topping. This solution is the most economical way to create floors with long column-free spans.
