Steely nerve

A worker from refit specialist Killby & Gayford manoeuvres one of 85 steel beams required as part of a £5.5 million building makeover in London.

The commercial property, in Farringdon, is midway through refurbishment including a new roof extension.

The beams will form the basis of the structural frame for a new roof to the fourth floor of the building.

A Raymonde Luffing crane, with a 30 m reach, was needed to help install the beams for the project – on which Michael Chester & Partners is structural engineer and William Brady Associates the quantity surveyors.

The works are scheduled for completion this autumn.
