Metal Deck has completed the contract to supply and install Kingspan Multideck steel decking for the first units at a major new industrial park in Darnell, Sheffield.
Tungsten Park is a 9-acre industrial development on Greenland Road and forms part of the city’s established Sheepcote Lane Industrial Area. The site was formerly occupied by a B&Q retail warehouse and vacant land.
When complete, the scheme will provide over 188,000 sq ft of accommodation; a combination of refurbished industrial units and 58,000 sq ft of new build comprising four industrial units alongside trade counter.
Some space has already been pre-let to Formula One Autocentre and Costa Coffee.
Metal Deck, the steel decking contractor division within Raised Floor Solutions, was awarded the project to supply and install Kingspan Multideck for the first units at the park by the scheme’s steel contractor.
Metal Deck is the UK’s largest and longest serving approved Kingspan Multideck contractor. The team supplied and installed 199m2 (2142sq ft) of Kingspan Multideck MD60 with gauges of 0.9mm and 1.0mm.
Completion of the scheme is anticipated from May this year.
What is Multideck?
Multideck is a type of high performance steel decking manufactured by Kingspan, a global provider of advanced insulation and sustainable building materials. Multideck is available in five different profiles; one shallow (or dovetail) and four deep (or trapezoidal).
Kingspan Multideck MD60, which was specified for this job, is one of the most frequently specified types of trapezoidal steel decking. It has a 60mm deep profile which provides an excellent composite union with the concrete maximising load capability and delivering unpropped spans of up to 4.5m.
