Caunton Engineering completed the structural steelwork for a new Learning Resources Centre for Middlesex University in Hendon. The sophisticated design by architect BPR Architects and engineer Bridges Pound focussed on modern sustainability techniques, and featured tubular steel columns coated with intumescent paint off-site. Caunton's tubular fabrication facility has recently been augmented with a modern CNC tube-profiler, which was to improve handling and accelerate fabrication speeds. Caunton's own directly employed erection team were to maintain extra vigilance when handling the fire protected members. They also erected the pre-cast floors and staircases. The project incorporated over 500te of structural steelwork.
Fitzpatrick Contractors were main contractors on this most important and high profile improvement to facilities within the education sector.
This is a fine example of Caunton fabricating tubular sections.
