Francis Crick Institute benefits from modern curved steel solutions

Proudly carrying the moniker of the co-discoverer of DNA's molecular structure, the first scientists have moved into the Francis Crick Institute in London. The £650 million structure will be Europe's largest biomedical laboratory under one roof and will study how illness develops with the aim of tackling health conditions such as cancer, heart disease and brain disorders. The distinctive structure owes its modern appearance to the work of Tividale-based Barnshaws Section Benders, who supplied approximately 300 tons of precision curved structural steel to help realise the project.
