Sky has embarked onto redeveloping the former Harrods depository site in Hounslow into their new headquarters, Sky Central. A key element of the Sky Central design is the long span roof. It is one of the largest timber roofs in Europe and consists of deep timber beams supporting a lightweight timber cassette roof deck. The cassettes and skylights were prefabricated offsite and installed in 10.5x3m sections, allowing for a high speed construction.
