The photographs on the website have been selected from among Corus' many prestigious global projects. Here we tell you a little more about the story behind each photograph.

 

The Tsing Ma Bridge (Hong Kong) is the world's second longest suspension bridge and uses ninety-six 480 ton Corus steelwork modules for the deck structure as well as 20 kilometers of rail track supplied by Corus Rail.

Burj Al Arab Hotel, Dubai, built to an amazing sail-like shape on a man-made island, uses 9,000 tonnes of Corus steel to achieve a beautiful effect. It is one of the world's tallest hotels, but entry isn't cheap - it costs £3,000 a night for a single room.

A former Corus site now houses the Magna Science Adventure Centre. Hailed as "awe-inspiring" and "truly sublime" Magna is an amazing day out involving a multi-sensory, multi-media exploration of the great ages of industry and technology. Corus are delighted that the famous Templeborough Steelworks near Rotherham has been brought to life again, and that they played a part in its construction and its contents.

Corus steel is holding up Chep Lap Kok Airport in Hong Kong - literally . Thousands of tonnes of Corus steel went into its foundations and buildings. The new airport is already one of the world's busiest and was designed by leading architect Sir Norman Foster.

Corus Minelifta - an innovative, affordable and effective solution to the world's horrific problem of landmines. The device is able to scoop mine and earth into an armour-plated ventilated drum. The earth is then pulverised and any devices detonate safely.

Corus is rolling out its new company brand across the world.

Manchester United - renowned the world over - has two new stands at its famous Old Trafford ground thanks to Corus Building Systems. The extensions to the West and East stands now keep an extra 12,900 fans under cover.

The Falkirk Wheel - a unique lifting bridge designed to reconnect the Forth & Clyde and Union canals between Glasgow and Edinburgh. It is the world’s first rotating boat lift and uses a 23 metre 70 tonne steel axle from CNES, Scunthorpe.
