Metsec Building Products has supplied 20 tonnes of its light-gauge galvanised steel zed purlins to support part of the roof covering of the prestigious new £11 million Elmhurst ballet boarding school in Birmingham. The main school comprises a highly complex, sweeping three-storey post and beam structure with curved hot-rolled steel sections bent in two planes, forming the roof. Metsec's cold-rolled purlins were specified to support the composite roof cladding over the main plant room area.
