Critical stage reached in PTW's Beijing "watercube" construction 

The steel structure of the Beijing Swimming Centre dubbed “Watercube” is nearing completion with the majority of the steel members in place and final welding of steel connections and preparation of the steel work for painting, now taking place. The 500m2 of ETFE test panel has been removed and a test area of painted steelwork undertaken. Manufacture of the ETFE final façade is in full swing, with installation due to start in June 2006. This installation will take place in stages commencing on the western façade.
