WEST QUAY SHOPPING CENTRE
SOUTHAMPTON
WestQuay is the premier shopping destination on the South Coast, designed over 3 storeys
with retailing arranged over 2 floors and an upper level containing a 2,000 seat food
terrace, this development has become the location of choice to the UK’s leading retailers.
At the time of construction WestQuay was the largest inner-city project of its type in Europe, the
nature of the steelwork we provided was also quite remarkable. The focal space roof was formed with
14 metre span tubular trusses supported by branched circular columns. The entire steel roof
structure had to be erected on a temporary scaffold support structure and lowered into position onto
the branched circular columns. 20 metre boxed girders weighing approximately 50 tonnes formed the
Portland Terrace Bridge. Their massive size deliveries meant that many roads around Southampton
had to be closed when they were delivered. The roof over the bridge also had 8 welded trusses
weighing 34 tonnes each. These were pre-fabricated at our works to enable the 350 tonne structure
to be erected in just 8 days.
