Upwards with ease
Like few other materials, steel lends itself to large-scale industrial structures: versatile, modular, easily deployed whether horizontally or vertically. By way of example, this production centre required 800 tonnes of steel to create. The towers are 30 metres in height and the panelling used covers a surface area of 16,000 m2.
Menon constructed the whole building with its perimeter canopy roof. This includes an entirely suspended corner area, which leaves the goods loading/unloading area as free as possible from obstructions. The cantilever roof itself required 85 tonnes of steel and 2,500 m2 of soffit and roof panelling.
