The Project

SFC have designed, detailed, manufactured and installed these unique aerofoil steels as part of a new office development next to Gatwick airport. The beams were over 17 metres long so required special care during manufacture and installation. The Aerofoil profile was formed by welding two different section size CHS together with internal stiffeners and full length cover plates. This required considerable fabrication expertise to keep the sections straight due to the heat incorporated into the section during the manufacturing process.
